Tax Increment Financing

Tax Increment Financing (TIF) is an economic development tool that communities can use. The City of East Lansing has utilized TIF in downtown East Lansing and various brownfield sites throughout the City. The purpose of the tool is to leverage the increase in tax revenue that comes from development for purposes of supporting that development, either directly or with public infrastructure.
