Incentives To Succeed

Fort Worth is dedicated to the success of every business that opens its doors here, relocates here, or seeks to thrive here.

With zoning that allows for a versatile mix of uses, density, design options, and creativity, those doing business in Upstream are being given the green light by the city to make their space their own.

These highlighted incentives are part of the Thrive In Fort Worth Program:

TAX INCREMENT FINANCING DISTRICT

Tax increment financing is a tool authorized by Chapter 311 of the Texas Tax Code by which local governments can publicly finance needed structural improvements and enhanced infrastructure within a defined area called a reinvestment zone. Panther Island is within the Riverfront TIF district, in which Fort Worth is investing in utility relocations, upgrades, pedestrian & cityscape improvements, roadway & storm drain improvements, public plaza construction, waterfront development, and strategic demolitions of derelict properties.

ENTERPRISE FUND

The Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) is the largest “deal-making” fund of its kind in the nation. The fund is used as a final incentive tool for projects that offer significant projected job creation and capital investment and where a single Texas site is competing with another viable out-of-state option.
