We use this information to establish the district's base value and to verify the municipality followed proper legal procedures.

An ER TID allows municipalities to use TIF funds to pay for specific environmental remediation expenses. For more information on these expenses, visit the Natural Resources Remediation and Redevelopment Program website.
