Starke County Economic Development Foundation, Inc.

Local/County

Starke County and its municipalities offer assistance to new companies through required infrastructure improvements and tax phase-in. The infrastructure assistance is determined on a case-by-case basis. Tax phase-in (tax abatement) is reviewed by the governmental unit in which the project is to be located. If approval is granted, it can be for up to ten (10) years for both real and personal property and there are annual reporting documents that must be filed.

For information about eligibility and the tax phase-in process, refer to the Tax Abatement & Criteria memorandum.

In addition, the City of Knox has a revolving loan fund that can be used on some projects. For more information on that, you should contact Larry Wickert, the Foundation's Executive Director.
