Montana law enables local governments to use tax revenue in designated districts (Tax Increment Financing Districts, or TIFs) for development and redevelopment activities and to pay for public infrastructure needs of projects. The Butte Tax Increment Financing Industrial District (TIFID) focuses on the Montana Connections Business Development Park, providing financial support to help with adding capacity, building facilities, and site development. Funds are available to help qualified candidates. Assistance levels are based on total project investment and job creation.
There are seven (7) members on the TIFID Board, and each member serves a three (3) year term. The appointing authority for the Board is the Chief Executive with concurrence by the Council of Commissioners.
