Across the St. Louis region, TIF and other tax incentives have diverted hundreds of millions of dollars from city budgets and school budgets. This presentation will provide an overview of tax incentive use, focusing on opportunities to engage with Team TIF, a volunteer group seeking to bring greater transparency and racial equity to incentive use. Presenter: Dr. Molly Metzger, assistant professor at Washington University, a board member at the Metro St. Louis Equal Housing and Opportunity Council (EHOC), and one of the founding members of Team TIF. Her forthcoming book, “Facing Segregation: Policy Solutions for a Stronger Society,” will come out in November 2018.
