Our hometown businesses benefit from the quality workforce with a rural work ethic. As part of the Hickman County workforce, your business will be a part of the Nashville MSA and will qualify for the Enhanced Jobs Tax Credit Incentive available through the State of Tennessee. Here are some of our FastTract programs.
- Infrastructure Program. Grants can be made to local communities to build their infrastructure under a matching fund arrangement.
- Job Training. Companies can receive grants to help with expenses for training employees.
- Economic Development. Industrial Development Boards can receive grants to help companies upgrade their facilities or relocate to a community.
Eligibility and Funding Levels
The level of assistance depends upon the amount a company is willing to invest along the kinds of employment being considered. Factors include the number of hires, the wages, the kinds of skills and knowledge that will be required, and the location being considered.
Our local Industrial Boards for Hickman County and Centerville stand ready to offer incentives via PILOT (Payment in lieu of taxes) and TIF (Tax increment financing) programs.
