Tax Increment Financing (TIF) has proven to be an effective tool in many states.  This has not been the case in Connecticut where a patchwork of provisions has made TIF difficult to implement.  However, the General Assembly passed a new tax increment finance law in 2015 which overhauled Connecticut's development statues.  This opens new opportunities for developers and towns to collaborate on projects that meet both public and privat objectives.


This program will focus on how developers and communtiies might use TIF as part of the capital requirements for development projects.  The programs learning objectives are:

1) Understand the details of the new Tax Increment Finance law passed by the General Assembly in 2015

2) Explore a case study of how the Town of Windsor used TIF

3) Discover new opportunities the legislation creates for developers and communities in CT

4) Discuss public-private partnership tools for development and exchange ideas on implementation
