Incentives and Financial Programs

We also have extensive experience with Kentucky's generous incentive programs, which were further expanded in 2009 with the passage of the Kentucky Business Investment Act (KBI). Benefits are available for all types of companies - new, existing and relocating; regional and national headquarters; back-office; distribution and supply chain; manufacturing; and research and development.
