The Incentives You Need to Get Ahead

Affordable talent. More resources. And a low cost of doing business. To help offset the financial obligation of relocation or expansion, the City offers Business Investment Grants, which are a reimbursement of incremental net new property tax paid as a result of your investment. Grants range from 50% to 90% reimbursement with term periods between 3 to 10 years. Projects awarded incentives must be competitive in nature and approval is at the discretion of Charlotte City Council.

Additional incentives and grants are offered by Mecklenburg County and the North Carolina Department of Commerce. Targeted, performance-based incentive programs complement North Carolina’s competitive state cost structure.
