CDFA Missouri Financing Roundtable Newsletter


MO Senate Gives Quick Ok To Massive Tax Cut
The Missouri Senate gave preliminary approval to what has been described as the largest tax cut in the state's history. The proposal would lower the state's 5.9 percent income tax rate to 5.25 percent, with additional reductions in future years if state revenues hit certain triggers.

MO Historic Tax Credits Could be Pared Back
A tax credit program designed to help developers restore and reuse old buildings and put them back on the property tax rolls would be pared back under a plan approved in the Missouri Senate. The measure sponsored by Sen. Dan Hegeman, R-Cosby, would reduce the cap on credits to $90 million, down from its current level of $140 million annually.

Missouri FIRST Loan Program Provides Capital for Small Businesses
The program partners with participating banks and lending institutions to provide low-interest loans to small businesses. According to the treasurer's website, the program allows lenders to lower the interests rate for borrowers by about 2 to 3 percent.

Opportunity Zone Will Offer New Tool for Lake of the Ozarks
The setup of the new Opportunity Zone could have widespread implications for development in this area as it may be able to incentivize housing developments, and given the income requirements for the zone, these projects could produce some affordable housing projects.

Merchants Bridge Could be Key P3 Case Study for Nation
The plan to replace Merchants Bridge is a prime example of the type of public-private partnership that has potential to succeed in the current funding climate. The Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis has committed to funding nearly two-thirds of the project's cost, with the remainder hopefully to be covered by federal funds.

Downtown Kirskville, MO Considers Using TIF Funds for Facade Program
The concept is simple enough: Use about $800,000 already in the Downtown Tax Increment Financing District fund to pilot a facade improvement plan for downtown buildings, as well as replacing downtown sidewalks and installing new pedestrian lighting.

PACE Used to Finance New Grocery Store in MO
Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) was recently used to finance a new grocery store in St. Louis, Missouri. This represents the first project to use PACE financing for new construction in Missouri and also the first project to use PACE for new construction retail in the country.
