Tax Increment Financing

Tax Increment Financing (TIF) is a method available to support private development projects that are aimed at eliminating symptoms of urban blight. Through the Denver Urban Renewal Authority, TIF has helped finance a number of projects, such as the Stapleton redevelopment, Dahlia Square Shopping Center, and the Pepsi Center site. TIF allows the Denver Urban Renewal Authority to issue and repay redevelopment bonds by using the increment of increased taxes collected within the district after improvements are made.
