Cleveland Tax Abatement Study Available

In summer 2019, the city of Cleveland’s Office of Community Development and the Equitable Community Development Working Group engaged with Reinvestment Fund, PFM, Greater Ohio Policy Center, Neighborhood Connections and Leverage Point Development, to study the City’s residential tax abatement program. The study was commissioned to better understand the historic usage of the program, the value it generated for the City, and to identify potential adjustments to the program that would help the City advance an Equitable Community Development Strategy as part of Mayor Jackson’s Neighborhood Transformation Initiative.
