Where does the money come from to undertake redevelopment activities?

The main source of funding comes from tax increment dollars.  This money is generated when the assessed value of a property is increased in accordance with Proposition 13, which was enacted by the voters of California in 1978.  Assessed value of a property may be increased by change of ownership, the annual inflationary adjustment (not be exceed 2%), or in the event of new construction or significant rehabilitation of a property.
