Project Profile

State Incentives Policies Study

Start Date: Feb 2007 — End Date: Oct 2007

Under a subcontract agreement with TechSolve, staff from the Council for Community & Economic Research (C2ER) and the Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness (CREC) conducted a comprehensive assessment of incentive programs in 11 states designed to support an analysis of Ohio’s comparative advantage.

The analysis included a summary of key programs, an assessment of reported program performance, a snapshot of funding support, and an analysis of the policy priorities for nearly 300 incentive programs. The research project represented a component of a larger legislative policy priority agenda for the State’s governor.
