Economic Development Programs
Florida is a cost-effective, business-friendly state to locate or grow your business. And Sarasota County offers even more incentives for businesses wanting to make their home on the Suncoast.
Florida offers advantages for long-term profitability to all types of businesses. As a whole, our state believes in making it worth your while to relocate or start your business here. And for industry sectors targeted for investment, the state offers even more grants, refunds, and credits to make it happen.
Our local incentive programs are designed to provide even more support for businesses looking to locate and grow in Florida. They solve three key problems your business faces: time, cost, and uncertainty.
