Reference: Searchable Database of Incentives to Business By State & Local Governments
The database was developed by The New York Times for a series of articles, “examining business incentives and their impact on jobs and local economies.”
From the Database Intro:
The New York Times spent 10 months investigating business incentives awarded by hundreds of cities, counties and states. Since there is no nationwide accounting of these incentives, The Times put together a database and found that local governments give up.
It includes info about more than 1800 subsidy programs worth $80.4 billion.
Data sources include:
- State Agencies
- Government Reports
- Investment Consulting Associates
- Good Jobs First
- Company Financial Filings
- Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
- National Association of State Budget Officers
