Promoting the Ethical and Responsible use of Economic Incentives and Public Financing Programs in Missouri.

Tax incentives and government financing programs can make it easier for businesses of all sizes to get off the ground, expand operations, or relocate to Missouri. When used as intended, they can provide many benefits to communities and development projects.

The Missouri Economic Development Financing Association (MEDFA) is made up of Missouri municipalities, developers, attorneys, financial professionals, and community leaders working together to evaluate what’s working and what’s not so we can educate our members on their responsible use, potential benefits, and obstacles.
