Local Incentives

Vance County offers an aggressive and competitive local incentive program.  The program is based on several criteria including: capital investment, number of jobs, sector of the economy, wages & benefits to workers and location of the facility.

The County and City also have a proven track record of providing “matching” funds when required by certain State incentives including Community Development Block Grants, One North Carolina Fund and the Rural Center’s Building Re-use grants.

In addition, the County and the City of Henderson can provide expedited permitting, reviews and inspections based on the scope of the project.  This can reduce the up-front costs to a company by providing a time-line and certainty that can be equated in savings.  The Henderson-Vance County Economic Development Commission would facilitate pre-application meetings and discussions between the company and the appropriate governmental agency.
