Economic Development Incentive Types

To determine whether your project site is within an eligible area to apply for funding, access the online mapping application. This mapping tool should be utilized prior to completing an application to help applicants with determining eligibility based on geographic location. Once a project location is determined to be geographically eligible, applicants will be directed to a basic project assessment site to gauge further eligibility.
