DDA Working For YOU
History of the DDA
Bridgeport Charter Township formed its Downtown Development Authority (DDA) in 1989 with an expansion to the district in 1992. The DDA district covers a small portion of Bridgeport Charter Township. The purpose of the DDA is to enhance and promote the well-being of the DDA district for both businesses and for patrons. The DDA is funded through Tax Increment Financing (TIF) which is a mechanism under Michigan law to finance public improvement projects or economic development. TIF is based on the theory that making such improvements or attracting development will result in increased property tax base for the Township, and that increase (the increment) can then be used to finance the cost of the improvements or incentives.
