The Downtown Billings Partnership (DBP), the economic development and redevelopment arm of the Alliance, was created in 1998, to implement the transformative 1997 Framework Plan, the downtown master plan. The DBP assists the City of Billings with Tax Increment Financing (TIF) investment in largely the central business district. Since the implementation of the Framework Plan in 1998, there have been 335 projects totaling over $66 million in Tax Increment Financing District (TIFD) funds and over $234 million in private investment to revitalize and grow the city center, downtown Billings.
