Retail Developers

The City may partner with retail developers and owner/operators on projects that support the Office of Economic Development's goals.

Large Projects

Tax Increment Financing Program

Projects located in a tax increment financing district may be eligible in limited instances for TIF funding; generally mixed-use developments with retail components better meet the goals of a district than retail-only projects.

New Markets Tax Credits

The City's New Markets Tax Credits program, administered through the Dallas Development Fund, may be able to offer equity financing to retail projects in Eligible and Distressed areas, for both operators and owners.

Small Projects / Operators

Property Assessed Clean Energy

The Dallas PACE program offers innovative financing for commercial building owners to make green energy improvements, including water conservation, energy-efficiency, and renewable retrofits.

Adaptive Reuse Grant Program

Under the Small Business Adaptive Reuse Program, small businesses which reside in owner-occupied single-tenant buildings in southern Dallas may be eligible for grant funding for building improvements.

South Dallas / Fair Park Opportunity Fund

Small businesses in the South Dallas / Fair Park area may be eligible for grants or loans under the SD/FP Opportunity Fund program.
