The Economic Development Incentive Program (EDIP) is a three-way partnership between a company, the local community and the state government to foster job creation and stimulate business growth throughout the Commonwealth. Participating companies may receive state and local tax incentives in exchange for job creation, manufacturing job retention and private investment commitments.
The Massachusetts Office of Business Development (MOBD) invites municipal representatives and other economic development partners to attend an information session to learn about the 2014 legislative and procedural changes to the EDIP that resulted from the signing of “An Act to Promote Economic Growth in the Commonwealth” by Governor Deval Patrick in August 2014.
Topics that will be covered in the session include:
- Brief Program Overview
- Changes to Economic Target Areas (ETAs) and Economic Opportunity Areas (EOAs): All 351 MA communities can now participate in the EDIP
- Streamlining of Municipal Process for Tax Increment Financing Agreements (TIFs) and Special Tax Assessments (STAs)
- New Tax Credit: The Job Creation Project Credit
- Certified Project Revocation: Process for communities to keep Local Incentive when state decertifies
- Q & A
