Incentives

Working with the Kentucky Cabinet of Economic Development, TVA and local government, MCEDC offers incentives for new and expanding industry, workforce training, and more. MCEDC has a history of providing creative solutions to meet industry needs and often provides local incentives that can help put your project in the black quickly, and for the long term.

Local Incentives

In Murray and Calloway County, we understand that local incentives are often what “seals the deal”. Because of that, we strive to be smartly aggressive and very creative. We know that ramp-ups affect the bottom line and do everything possible to ensure a rapid transition to profitability and long-term success.

Here are just a few ways we work to preserve your capital and get your company on the road to profits:

  • Custom Build to Suit
  • Rapid Turn Spec Buildings
  • Operating Leases
  • Capital Leases
  • Discounted Land
  • Infrastructure Grants (likely unnecessary since Murray – West is fully served)
  • Below Market Loans
  • Fully graded and compacted sites

...and that's just the start. Let us work with you to show how we can make good things happen for you and Murray-Calloway County together.

Primary Federal Incentives

New Market Tax Credits

The New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) is a program that provides Federal Tax Credits for equity investments in qualified areas such as the Murray-West Industrial Park. Under the NMTC, investors can receive tax credits equal to 39% of the total qualified equity investment with the credits being realized over a seven year period. The NMTC is a powerful tool for well-qualified investors.
