The purpose of the Downtown Nashville Development Incentive Grant (DIG) is to encourage reinvestment in Downtown Nashville. The program covers substantial rehabilitation of older buildings and new infill development. The initiative covers the shaded area on the attached map, which is roughly bounded by Church Street, Barnes Street, Alston Street, and West Washington Street. Incentive grants are given yearly for five (5) years.
The grant is available over five years, representing a percentage of the difference of the parcel’s improved assessed value and previous, unimproved assessed value. The Development Incentive Grant (DIG) amount per year will be a percentage of this formula as follows: Year 1: 100%, Year 2: 80%, Year 3: 60%, Year 4: 40% and Year 5: 20%. Since the tax rate and/or property valuation may change during the five-year grant period, the base grant amount will be recalculated each year. The percentage of the base grant amount, which steps down from 100% to 20%, is fixed.

 Substantial rehabilitation is defined as a rehabilitation that will cost at minimum $40 per square foot, make habitable/usable at least one floor of the building and at least triple the predevelopment tax value.
