Balancing Economic Development Costs with their Benefits is Something We Should be Talking About

Indiana Capital Chronicle | August 7, 2023
Last week the Indiana Economic Development Corporation asked for and received permission from the State Budget Committee for $120 million in incentive funds for an advanced manufacturing project planning to invest $3.2 billion in a new facility which should create 1,400 high wage jobs.

This request comes out of a new $500 million “Deal Closing Fund” that was created in the budget passed in April.

This is the second time that the IEDC has come forward to ask for significant funding since the budget was finalized. In June, IEDC asked for and was granted a release of $122 million for a $50 billion semiconductor investment in Boone County’s LEAP district. IEDC should be commended for their capacity to move swiftly when such advantageous opportunities arise.
