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.

Applications can be obtained from the Planning Office, on the third floor of City Hall. For more information or to see if your property qualifies, visit or call the Planning Office at 316-284-6001.
