Delmar Tax Relief Fund
This fund’s purpose is to assist residents in the Central and Delmar corridor (owner occupied homes) from losing their homes at tax sales due to back taxes and to assist with providing relief to homeowners facing rising property tax due to gentrification and drastic increases in property value, as well as to assist residents impacted by Covid-19 from becoming delinquent in property taxes.
Real Estate Tax Assistance Program
In the city of St. Louis, over 50 owner-occupied homes are estimated to be lost due to tax foreclosure each year due to unpaid real estate taxes, sometimes over as little as $400. As the result of a tax foreclosure, homeowners face loss of housing stability and erasure of equity, while neighborhoods bear the burden of population loss and increased vacancy.
RETAF prevents these devastating events and keeps families in their homes by providing immediate financial assistance to owner-occupant homeowners who are at imminent risk of a tax foreclosure.
