A variety of business incentives are available in the five county region. Explore a few specific programs below.
The Enterprise Zone program is designed to encourage businesses of all sizes to make new or additional investments that will improve employment opportunities, spur economic growth, and diversify business activity within the communities each zone encompasses.
The primary benefit to qualifying businesses is 100 percent abatement from local property taxes for at least three, and in some cases up to five years on plant and equipment newly invested in the zone.
