Neighborhood Revitalization Program

This program makes tax rebates available for home or business property improvements. If you are building a new structure or making significant improvements to residential, commercial or industrial property, your project may be eligible for the Neighborhood Revitalization Program.

The Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) is a way to receive up to a 10-year rebate on the increased taxes paid as a result of new construction or rehabilitation projects. Eligible commercial and residential properties could receive up to a 100 percent rebate.
