  • Expansion Assistance

Dedicated members of our team check in regularly and work directly with local business and industry to share available resources and address any needs or issues so that companies and organizations have the opportunity to thrive and grow. Typical incentives in the BRE program include:

  • Capital investment (real & personal property) reimbursement

  • Job creation grants

  • Infrastructure investment reimbursement

  • Development costs reimbursement
