Financial Incentives Procedural Incentives
  • Chapter 380 Agreements 
    Chapter 380 of the Local Government Code provides very significant legislative authority for Texas municipalities in the area of economic development. When a city wants to provide a grant or a loan of city funds or services in order to promote economic development, it generally cites its powers under Chapter 380. Cities have utilized the provisions under this law to provide a myriad of incentives that have drawn businesses and industries to locales throughout Texas. This statute basically allows the provision of loans and grants of city funds, as well as the use of city staff, city facilities, or city services at minimal or no charge.

  • Tax Increment Financing
    Tax Increment Financing (TIF) is a tool to finance public improvements within a defined area. The improvements should enhance the environment and attract new investment. The statutes governing tax increment financing are in Chapter 311 of the Texas Tax Code.

  • Infrastructure Assistance or Reimbursement

  • Administrative Fee Reductions
  • Fast-Track Planning Processing
    City would work with the prospect to accommodate a zoning or site plan approval process shorter than the typical process.

  • Fast-Track Permitting
    City would work with the prospect to allow fast-track permitting with phased permit releases if desired.
