The breakdown of the subsidy package is taken from: Dave Michaels, "How cities help pay for stores," The Dallas Morning News, November 1, 2004.
In May 2004, Cabela's announced it would open two of its megastores in Texas, one in Forth Worth and another in Buda, a small town south of Austin. The state provided $600,000 from the Texas Enterprise Fund and $20 million for highway improvements in Buda. The localities created Tax Increment Financing, or TIF, districts to reimburse the company for up-front costs. Forth Worth's TIF subsidy was set at about $57.2 million over 20 years; Buda's was about $36 million. The main Subsidy Tracker data contains a $400,000 entry for the Texas Enterprise Fund.
