Project Profile

Inventory of State Economic Development Investment Programs

Start Date: May 2014 — End Date: May 2024

The Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) in collaboration with CREC entered into a partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s SelectUSA initiative to make some features of the State Business Incentives Database publicly available through website.  C2ER provides the database to SelectUSA through an application programming interface (API) to provide public to access to more than

1,900 active programs authorized by, funded by, and/or managed by the 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and five territories. Each profile includes narrative overview of each program, program type, program industry by NAICS code, geographic focus, eligibility and application process, statutory background and a direct link to state-provided information, if available.
