Helping Businesses Grow Helps Our Regional Community Thrive

By helping business grow and prosper in Warren and Washington counties, the IDA helps local people and communities thrive. Successful businesses provide jobs for local people, generate tax revenue for local communities.


People who are starting new businesses, and existing businesses seeking to expand and grow, sometimes need help with their initial investments to make their project financially viable for the long term. Our programs do just that and can also help incentivize businesses to locate in our region.


We can help businesses start, relocate, and grow by providing temporary property tax relief on new construction, as well as mortgage and sales tax exemptions, based on the long-term economic benefits they will bring to our communities.

Our region benefits not only in the long-term, but also while these incentives are in place
