Modifications to 10 Tax Increment Financing Plans to Allow for Potential TIF Assistance to Low-Income Rental Housing Projects

The City of Minneapolis is seeking input on Modifications (PDF) to the following Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Plans: 

 •  West Side Milling District
 •  Heritage Landing
 •  Historic Milwaukee Depot Reuse
 •  Stinson Technology Campus
 •  Former Federal Reserve
          •  East Hennepin & University
 •  Grant Park
 •  Ivy Tower
 •  East River/Unocal Site
 •  Consolidated Redevelopment TIF District

(See maps (PDF) for locations of TIF districts.)

The Modifications:

  • Amend the TIF Plan budgets to reflect changes in projected revenues and costs through the remaining duration of the districts, including increased amounts for construction of affordable housing; and
  • Add language (to those plans that don’t already contain it) describing the allowable use of tax increment revenues to assist qualified low-income rental housing projects (“affordable housing”) located anywhere within the city.

The Modifications do not appropriate any specific tax increment funds for affordable housing. Rather, they give the City Council the authority to make appropriations from these 10 TIF districts for affordable housing in the future. Such appropriations would happen through either the City’s normal budget process or through separate City Council action(s).

No properties are being added to or removed from the TIF districts.

Please submit your comments by noon on Monday, November 5, 2018 via e-mail to Mark Winkelhake, Director, Development Finance, Finance & Property Services Department. If you or your group would like to meet to discuss the Modifications, or if you have questions, please contact Mark Winkelhake at (612) 673-5105.

It is expected that the Modifications will be considered at the following meetings of the Minneapolis City Council and its committees:

Housing Policy & Development Committee

Proposed program guidelines - 4d Affordable Housing Incentive Program

The City of Minneapolis is seeking public comment on guidelines for the proposed City of Minneapolis 4d Affordable Housing Incentive Program.

Comments on the proposed guidelines for the new program are due no later than Sunday, October 21, 2018 and can be sent to: Dean Porter-Nelson, Housing Stability Specialist, 612-673-5237.
