The Missouri Economic Development Finance Association (MEDFA), works to preserve, enhance, and promote the responsible use of economic development tools in the state of Missouri through education and advocacy derived from the collective expertise of our public and private sector members.

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

  • Tax Increment Financing, Historic Tax Credits
  • Community Improvement Districts
  • Transportation Development Districts
  • Brownfield Tax Credits
  • Enterprise Zones
  • Real Estate Tax Abatement

MEDFA takes an active role in legislative matters in the Missouri General Assembly that may affect economic development financing tools in Missouri. We advocate for responsible use of these tools through annual conferences and events. Our membership includes community economic development directors, public officials and municipalities, real estate developers, attorneys, and financial professionals from across the state.
