What the DDA Strives For

Paw Paw Downtown Development Authority
The Downtown Development Authority is a type of tax increment finance authority available to a city, a village or a township that’s primary job is to work on revitalization, beautification, redevelopment and business retention within the central business district. The Paw Paw Downtown Development also assists local DDA district business with matching facade grants to help business and building owners keep up on building repairs in an attempt to keep the beauty and integrity of our downtown district. We believe that a well maintained downtown that is pedestrian friendly, engaging and attractive will be a welcoming destination for both visitors and residents alike.
