business incentives initiative

Pew’s business incentives initiative helps states identify and share best practices for collecting, managing, and analyzing data on economic development incentives. The initiative collaborates with the governors of Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Virginia, each of whom has assembled a team with expertise in economic development, revenue, budgeting, auditing, and other areas. These groups work across agencies and states to share innovations and resolve common challenges.

The initiative will culminate with the release of a report outlining effective strategies that states can use to improve their own economic development investments. The business incentives initiative is a joint project of Pew and the Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness and is supported by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation.
