The Industrial Development Authority (IDA) is a conduit-issuer of bonds, formed in 1982 by the Los Angeles City Council. The IDA enables bonds to be issued with a tax-exempt status, but does not pledge City funds to repay the bond issues.

These bonds are offered as an incentive to companies involved in manufacturing and processing activities - to relocate to Los Angeles or remain and expand in the City - thereby creating and retaining jobs, promoting economic revitalization, and providing much needed public and community services.

Since its inception, the IDA has directly issued or facilitated over $2.3 billion in bond issues. The IDA works closely with a team of qualified financial professionals whose goal is to process bonds in a timely, accurate and cost-effective manner.
