Tax Increment Financing
Developers making a large-scale investment that requires substantial public improvements may be able to use tax increment financing (TIF) to offset a portion of those costs. The city has 35 tax increment districts and in some cases will create a TIF specific to a project.
Real Estate Financing Gap or Property Sale Assistance
Developers may request general real estate assistance that is outside of a CRA, JCTC, or TIF incentive structure. This assistance request may include the purchase of city property or a request for city gap financing.
