Funding the Future of Tulsa

Tax Increment Financing (TIF) is a funding tool used to encourage and leverage private and public investment in specific areas of Tulsa. TIF is used to build and repair public infrastructure, encourage placemaking, and assist in the development of unproductive properties. Funds are generated over a period of up to 25 year by growth in the Assessed Value (AV) of properties and the sales tax generated by business activities within a designated district. PartnerTulsa currently manages TIF Districts in Downtown Tulsa, the intersection of 11th and Lewis, the Peoria Mohawk Business Park and 36th St. North and MLK Boulevard.

Downtown Area TIF

PartnerTulsa currently manages several TIF districts within the Downtown area that were created to assist in the development of unproductive properties and the construction of public improvements. Several Downtown TIF Districts were active in 2018, while others remain inactive until the revenues from private development can be fully leveraged. If you are interested in how TIF can assist you and your Downtown Development, please contact Spencer Mitchell at PartnerTulsa.

The Peoria Mohawk TIF was created to leverage the investment from private companies at the Peoria Mohawk Business Park to improve housing conditions and encourage housing development in the surrounding area. The TIF was adopted in 2019 and is currently collecting revenues. PartnerTulsa expects to launch a number of housing programs funded from the revenues by 2024.
