EDC / TIFA & Brownfield Redevelopment Authority

Overview

The Economic Development Corporation / Tax Increment Finance Authority (EDC/TIFA) accomplishes economic and community development activities that are specifically authorized by Michigan statutes. The authority is comprised of nine members who are appointed by the Mayor with the advice and consent of the City Council and for tax increment financing purposes, three of the members represent Portage Public Schools.

The EDC/TIFA members have also been designated to perform brownfield redevelopment activities as authorized by statute. The authority is a financing entity and, through industrial development bonds and the capture of tax increment revenues, can plan and finance public activities to facilitate business and industrial growth and property redevelopment.
