Local Incentive

Direct Incentives


Direct incentives are based on total economic impact of a project, including capital investment and job creation.

Like a finely-tuned sports car, KEDC direct incentives are responsive to your needs. The money is flexible and under local control, so decisions are quick.

Funds for direct economic incentives are collected from a dedicated sales tax. The KEDC board of directors oversees the use of these funds and will work with primary employers who are choosing to locate or expand in Kilgore, Texas.  Incentive awards are based on project impact including investment, number of jobs and payroll.  To learn more about KEDC direct incentives contact KEDC Executive Director Lisa Denton at 903 983 3522 or ldenton@kilgore-edc.com.
