Tax Increment Finance Authority (TIFA III)

Tax increment financing allows for cities to make public improvements in a specific redevelopment district that are necessary to induce and accommodate private development such as industrial, commercial and residential construction in that same district. The financing for these public improvements comes from the increase in property tax revenues generated by the new private development in the designated district.
