Local Incentives

NETWORKS works in collaboration of the industrial development boards throughout Sullivan and Hawkins counties to offer local incentives to qualifying projects. These IDBs offer Payment in Lieu of Tax (PILOT) and Tax Increment Financing (TIF) programs. The value and terms of these incentives are determined on a project-by-project basis with determining criteria including number of jobs created, wages offered, and level of investment by the company. Many of the publicly-owned parks also offer reductions in land prices based on the same criteria.

Sullivan County also has an established small grant program (usually not exceeding $5,000 and generally utilized for existing industry expansion).

Sullivan County and the cities within also offer expedited planning approval and other municipal services for qualifying projects.

Sullivan County is home to Foreign-Trade Zone No. 204. The FTZ offers importers exclusive benefits that are only available to zone users.

FTZ 204
