Promoting the Responsible use of Public Financing Programs

The Missouri Economic Development Financing Association (MEDFA) is made up of Missouri municipalities, developers, attorneys, financial professionals, and community leaders who work together to educate and promote the ethical and responsible use of public incentives and financing programs.

These programs include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Action Fund Loans
  • Brownfield Tax Credits
  • Community Improvement Districts
  • Enterprise Zones
  • Grow Missouri Loans
  • Historic Tax Credits
  • Property Tax Abatement Programs
  • Opportunity Zones
  • Sales Tax Exemptions
  • Tax-Exempt Industrial Revenue Bonds
  • Tax Increment Financing
  • Transportation Development Districts
  • Workforce Training


MEDFA takes an active role in legislative matters in the Missouri General Assembly that may affect economic development financing tools, and we advocate for the responsible use of these tools at our annual conference and events.
