Neighborhood Empowerment Zones (NEZ)

Promote housing, economic development and quality services in Fort Worth central city.

Now there are more reasons than ever to build in Fort Worth’s central city, thanks to an incentives package recently approved by the city council for any NEZs designated in the city.

Municipal property tax abatements, fee waivers and release of city liens are available to property owners who build or rehabilitate property within a NEZ. These incentives are designed to promote affordable housing, economic development and expanded services.
