North Carolina Ups Ante in Bid for Growing Data Center Industry | SSTI
North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory recently signed an economic development bill (HB 117) that would expand the operations of the state’s Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG) fund. The fund, which offers grants to companies for job creation and expansion, will have a higher annual cap, and a contingency to offer even more funds in years in which a “high-yield project” is supported. The North Carolina Competes Act also offers targeted support for a particular type of job creator: data centers. Data centers that invest $75 million or more are now eligible for significant tax incentives. North Carolina’s incentives are intended to help the state compete with a number of other states that have targeted this industry.
