With a little help from the U.S. Treasury, the Rhode Island Housing and Mortgage Finance Corp. plans a return to the housing bond market today after a nearly 15 month hiatus.

“We normally would be in the market about every four months or so, and we have held back from doing so since August of 2008 because the markets were so difficult,” said the corporation’s chief financial officer, Thomas Hogg. “The pricing in the markets for housing finance agencies has been very expensive and so we have held back waiting for either the markets to improve on their own or the Treasury program.”
