Economic Development : Business Advantages & Incentives – Small Businesses

The City of East Point recently adopted its first ever “Small Business Incentives Program” which offers a variety of benefits for new and existing businesses. The benefits range from permit and license fee waivers to tax and utility discounts. The program is designed to help small businesses and entrepreneurs lower the cost of doing business. The goal is not only to help businesses get started, but to help them grow and become successful small business enterprises. A small business, for the purpose of qualifying for these programs/incentives, is defined as a business with 9 employees or less. Small Business Incentive Program Brochure

The symposium features multiple panels of experts from State and local agencies providing information of interest to local businesses.
