Business expansion projects take many forms, such as adding new jobs, upgrading or expanding physical facilities, or focused employee recruitment. Sometimes it’s a blend of those elements. Given the variety of different projects, to learn if your project meets the minimum requirements to be considered for an incentive, review the Business Expansion Incentive Resource page and the Scoring Rubric to understand what the City of Austin is looking for to incentivize projects. In addition, you may review the Business Expansion Program Guidelines.
Or, submit this Business Expansion Incentive Inquiry Form and an Economic Development staff member will reach out to you to conduct a one-on-one discussion to learn more about your business and your expansion plans. From there, staff will assist you with the completion of the Incentive Application.
