Housing and Transit Reinvestment Zones (HTRZ)

In the 2021 General Legislative Session, the Housing and Transit Reinvestment Zone Act (SB 217) was adopted and allows for a municipality or a public transit county to propose a Housing and Transit Reinvestment Zone, or HTRZ, around strategic transit stations along the Wasatch Front.

An HTRZ is a strategic tool that enables a portion of incremental tax revenue growth to be captured over a period of time to support costs of development. The bill has been amended in subsequent years to expand eligibility to different types of transit, limit the number of allowable HTRZs, change committee membership, and provide additional clarification.

To request access to the HTRZ application portal or for additional information on HTRZ, interested municipalities or public transit counties should contact the office at htrz@utah.gov.
