Tax Increment Financing Districts

A Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District is an area of the city that is designated for special development or redevelopment. As new homes and businesses are built in the TIF District, the growth in property tax revenues is set aside in a TIF Fund and reinvested in the district. There are three TIF Districts in North Richland Hills.

Tax Increment Financing District #1


TIF #1 was created in 1998 to help revitalize a 95 acre area off Boulevard 26 around the old Richland Plaza Shopping Center. Through the TIF Fund, significant public drainage improvements were made, which spurred private reinvestment and redevelopment of the area.

TIF #1 was expanded in 2009 to include a total of 392 acres along Boulevard 26, Rufe Snow Drive and Glenview Drive. Under the expansion plan, a portion of property taxes from the district is designated for intersection and utility improvements within the district.

The City of North Richland Hills, Birdville ISD, Tarrant County, Tarrant County College District and Tarrant County Hospital District contribute a portion of their property tax revenue from the TIF District to the TIF Fund for public improvements. The District is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives from each of the participating entities.

Tax Increment Financing District #2


TIF #2 was created in 1999 to fund public improvements including the construction of the NRH Public Library which opened in 2008, the NRH Centre which opened in 2012 and a future Tarrant County College conference/performing arts center.

The City of North Richland Hills, Tarrant County, Tarrant County College District and Tarrant County Hospital District contribute a portion of their property tax revenue from the TIF District to the TIF Fund for public improvements. The District is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives from each of the participating entities.

In 2015, the TIF #2 boundaries were expanded to include a portion of the Tarrant County College Northeast Campus.

TAX Increment Financing District #3 and Public Improvement District 


TIF #3 and a Public Improvement District (PID) were created in 2019 to fund construction of new streets, sidewalks, water lines, sewer lines, drainage and other public improvements in the 52.873 acres City Point development located at the southeast corner of Boulevard 26 and Rodger Line Drive, adjacent to NRH City Hall. 

The City of North Richland Hills and Tarrant County will contribute 25% of the growth in property tax revenue in the TIF District to the TIF Fund for public improvements. The TIF funding is capped at an amount not to exceed $4.2 million from the city and $1.7 million from Tarrant County over a 20-year period. Property owners in the City Point development will be assessed an annual fee through the PID to fund the remaining costs.
