Economic Development Incentive Reports

Policymakers, journalists, and others interested in economic development in North Carolina will find detailed information about the state's incentive programs in this section.

We publish a variety of performance reports and program guidelines for North Carolina's economic development incentive programs, including reports detailing infrastructure grants awarded to local communities by the state's Rural Infrastructure Authority.

North Carolina’s targeted, performance-based incentive programs lower overall costs for a business locating or expanding in our state, and help North Carolina communities compete for jobs and economic growth.
 
Companies interested in North Carolina's incentive programs can also learn more about these programs here.
