The Urban Center Housing Tax Increment Financing (UCH-TIF) Program is a State statutory program authorizing cities and towns in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to promote housing and commercial development. The UCH-TIF Program provides real estate exemptions on all or part of the increased value (the "Increment") of improved real estate. Tax increment financing may be combined with grants and loans from local, state and federal development programs. The Department of Housing & Community Development's (DHCD) Division of Community Services is responsible for the operation and administration of the UCH-TIF Program. The Lowell UCH-TIF Plan was approved by DHCD in 2019.
