Whether your company is looking to expand current operations or establish a new venture, the HIDA offers financing programs to help you succeed in Hamburg. 

Industrial Revenue Bonds

The HIDA is authorized to issue Industrial Revenue Bonds to assist with our goal of stimulating economic growth in Hamburg. Industrial Revenue Bonds are available to finance the purchase and improvements of land, buildings, property and equipment for firms engaged in light manufacturing, office construction, warehousing/distribution, research and development and some commercial activities.

Similar to conventional mortgages, local banks, insurance companies and /or pension funds purchase the bonds issued by the HIDA. The rates, terms and conditions are all set by the purchaser and are backed by the full faith and credit of the borrower, not the HIDA.

Tax Exemptions and Tax Abatements

The HIDA provides real property tax abatements for 10 to 15 years on increased valuation in addition to state and local sales tax exemptions on equipment and materials for qualified projects.
A Proven Track Record of Success

Since its inception in 1987, the HIDA has participated in more than 25 total projects, representing over $59 million in capital investment and the creation of more than 700 jobs within the Town of Hamburg.

Examples of these projects include:

  • The HIDA arranged a lease for the construction of a new facility and the installation of new equipment for a precast concrete company. The company was able to take advantage of savings on sales tax for materials and equipment and a ten year property tax break on improvements.
  • The development of a 157 acre office and light industrial park was assisted by the HIDA in the form of state and local tax abatements pre designed for companies located in the park.
