Texas Incentive Opportunities

The State of Texas offers a variety of incentive programs designed to make capital more available for businesses looking to expand or locate in the state, as well as for companies already doing business in Texas. Committed to retaining its "business friendly" reputation, Texas stands ready to help businesses expand, and become globally competitive.

Throughout Central Texas, local governmental and economic development organizations work hand-in-hand to develop competitive incentive packages for qualified companies. Projects are generally reviewed on a case-by-case basis with consideration given to type of industry, number of employees, average wages, capital investment, financial strength, community involvement and other factors.

The region’s incentives available for investment and job creation are competitive with peer regions anywhere in the nation.
