The following Web sites provide information on grants and other funding opportunities or financial tools that may be available in your state and community.
Check with your state's economic development agency [XML] to determine whether there are funding resources offered in your area.
Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) is a funding mechanism that capitalizes future incremental tax revenue generated by a redevelopment project to retire debt incurred in enabling the development. Thus, a TIF permits cities, towns, or counties to use increased tax revenues stimulated by redevelopment or economic development to pay for the capital improvements needed to induce the redevelopment or economic development. Check with your city, county, or state to find out if a TIF has been established in your area.
