Economic Development Incentives

Economic Development Incentive Policy
Scott County provides economic development incentives in order to achieve its long-range vision of creating a diverse and sustainable economic base as envisioned in the County's Comprehensive Plan (link this to 2030 page).  Scott County and its partner municipalities and townships are working cooperatively to achieve a shared vision when there are enough jobs in the County to accommodate 50 percent of the resident labor force by 2030.

To achieve this vision, the County updated its Economic Development Incentive Policy in 2014 that identifies target industries eligible for County incentives.  These target industries were selected because they a) build on the County’s current cluster of industries, b) most closely match the existing employment skills of the County’s labor pool, or c) represent the projected future market for economic development over the next 20 years.

To be eligible, a business, industry or firm must be engaged in one or more of the following activities:

Warehousing and Distribution
Wholesale Trade
Transportation and Logistics
Data Centers
Research and Development
Corporate Headquarters
Tourism and Entertainment

Scott County offers a range of incentives. For a complete description of each incentive, as well as the application submittal and review process, please click on the link below to view the Economic  Development Incentive Policy.
