Subsidy Programs and Financing

Subsidies are provided by governments to encourage specific economic activity or to help achieve larger national objectives. They are typically offered in the form of cash payments, grants, tax breaks, or guaranteed or low-interest loans. Subsidies can help a community access education, healthcare or housing, or they might provide benefits to companies such as lower taxes and a government purchase of their products.

Many critics of subsidies highlight the distorted incentives they create. They claim that subsidies encourage companies to contribute to political campaigns and seek preferential treatment from policymakers. They also note that subsidies can deter innovation and inefficiency because they make companies that rely on them less likely than others to invest in new technologies or adapt their business model to meet consumer demand.

These subsidies can have a significant impact on the budget even if they're intended for a specific purpose. They could be difficult to estimate. They may also impede more efficient public spending.

For example that when governments subsidize energy production, they can help solar panels be affordable for homeowners and help companies that sell them by lowering their sales prices or offering tax credits. They can also promote the consumption of a product or service, for instance by offering families subsidies to pay for some of their health insurance premiums. The government can also encourage people to apply for federal loans by offering low interest rates, deferred payments or flexible payment schedules.
