Property Assessment and Reassessment Moratorium Program

This program encourages the repair, rehabilitation, restoration, or stabilization of qualifying structures located in the Louisville Metro area. Under the program, owners of qualified commercial or residential property may be eligible for a moratorium (or a freeze) on a portion of local taxes for a period of five years depending on the location of the property. The Property Assessment and Reassessment Moratorium Program was updated in 2020 to lower the threshold for qualified owner-occupied properties in historically disinvested neighborhoods, including the nine neighborhoods in West Louisville, Smoketown and Shelby Park. More information can be found here. You can also call Construction Review at (502) 574-3321.

 
Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) Plans
Louisville Metro utilizes Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Areas to carry out concentrated redevelopment efforts in specific neighborhoods. Currently, three neighborhoods are designated as NRSAs. Homeowner rehabilitation activities are supported in each of the NRSA Plans.

Russell NRSA Plan (active July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2021) 

The Russell NRSA Program includes other repair programs in the Russell neighborhood as well. The Russell Rental Rehab program is a partnership with landlords/owners of Russell properties that will assist with increasing the supply of long-term affordable, safe and sanitary rental units for low- and moderate-income residents.

Russell Homeownership Incentive program is geared towards new homeowners. The program encourages mixed-income neighborhoods by stabilizing housing in the community.
