Job Development Incentive Program (JDIP)

Local financial incentives are offered to new or expanding businesses in Bowling Green. This program complements incentives offered by the state.

JDIP is limited to new or existing manufacturing, agribusiness, non-retail service, technology, or regional/national headquarter operations in accordance with Chapter 11-6.01 of Bowling Green Code of Ordinances. To qualify, new jobs must be created that produce a minimum of $10,000 in annual City Withholding tax (1.85%) throughout the incentive period, or qualify for state economic incentives pursuant to programs administered by the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development. The qualifying businesses receive a withholding credit (1%) based on employee wages during the incentive period. The funds may be used for land acquisition, building, construction, renovation, machinery, equipment, or working capital expenses.
