What is TIFA? The Tax Increment Finance

Authority (TIFA) Board is an overseeing body

of the Highland Park Tax Increment Finance

(TIFA) district. A TIFA district is an

economic development tool that captures

increases in taxable property within a

certain boundary from a certain base year

and sends it to a separate account. The

money collected is to be used for various

projects, programs, and purchases to

improve the overall vitality of the district.

Many communities use these funds to

operate façade improvement programs or

special events in the district, to incentivize

new development, purchase vacant

properties for redevelopment, or to hire

additional public services (i.e. trash removal

and snow plowing) for the district. real estate local service realtor

The primary job of the TIFA is to attract

investment to the TIFA district. The impact of

that investment should service the greater

common good of Highland Park, allowing it to

afford the services and functions of a liveable

and equitable city. This is a full time job.

Adequate staffing and resources will be

critical to the implementation of the initiatives

presented in this plan.
