Commerce plans database of state business incentives

SelectUSA, a Commerce Department effort to encourage business investment in the United States, wants to build a database of business incentives offered by states.

A request for information on FedBizOpps describes the State Business Incentives Database as a comprehensive, searchable and regularly updated web-based database of all business incentives offered by states. It would also be embedded into the SelectUSA website.

The information in the State Business Incentives database would include a description of the program as well as information on:

  • Program type (e.g., equity investment, grant, loan, tax credit, tax abatement)
  • Business need addressed (e.g., site location, process improvement, workforce development)
  • Geographic focus (e.g., rural, urban, redevelopment zone)
  • Eligibility and application process

According to the RFI, the database must be searchable by keyword, program type, business need addressed, program industry and geographic focus. Additionally, it needs to have an Application Programming Interface that SelectUSA could use to display the application functions and features on a website.
