The Tax Increment Finance Authority was created on December 29, 1986.  Since then, many projects have been funded to help improve the quality of life for the residents of the District.  Some of these projects included district-wide waterline replacements, fire station improvements, the new police station & court house, the new JFK Library, just to name a few.  There is one thing in common, however, with all of these projects; the valuable time, effort and oversight spent by the members of the TIFA Board.

The TIFA Board usually meets every 2nd Wednesday of the month, as necessary, in the 2nd Floor TIFA Office at the Dearborn Heights Justice Center: 25637 Michigan Avenue.  (Notice posted on bulletin board at building entrance.)
