Port Authority Incentive Programs for Business

Minnesota Investment Fund (MIF)

The City of Breckenridge received approximately $1.5 million in funds for a revolving loan fund that is monitored by the Port Authority. The primary use of funds is for business development and assistance.  Funds are used for gap financing and not primary financing. This Revolving Loan Fund can be used in conjunction with Border Cities Tax Credits to assist businesses in the city of Breckenridge.  This fund has had an average balance of $676,000 available for business assistance over the past 10 years.

Border Cities Tax Credits

The City continues to receive Border Cities Tax Credits (Enterprise Zone Credits) from the State to distribute through its Border City Tax Credit Program. We usually receive around $100,000 every other year to help local businesses.
