Tax Abatement and Incentives:
The Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) program provides tax abatement for new construction and remodeling projects in commercial, industrial and residential areas.

The entire municipal boundary of the Village of Archbold has been designated for eligibility of the CRA with tax exemptions ranging up to 15 years.  CRAs can provide tax relief for all residential construction with a heavy focus on new construction.  On a case by case basis, the Village of Archbold along with support from the Archbold Area School District can offer abatements to commercial developments.  For more information please contact Aaron Alt, Assistant Administrator and Housing Officer at 419-446-2109.
