Pasco Incentives
Mobility (f.k.a. Imapct) Fees and Expedited Permitting for Target Industries
Did you know if you are a target industry, there are no Mobility Fees to pay the County when you locate or expand your business? Learn more about our Mobility Fee here. 

Expedited processes, including a 20 day site permit review time, can be used for businesses either relocating or expanding to Pasco County or for businesses already residing in Pasco County which need to expand. 

Completed applications along with supporting documentation must be submitted to Pasco Economic Development Council to qualify for these easy to get incentives.  

Ready Sites and Shell Building Loan Program
Through the Jobs and Economic Opportunities Trust Fund (Penny for Pasco - Economic Growth Program), the voters of Pasco County have authorized the use of a special trust fund to encourage investment through target industry job creation in our community. This fund is expected to generate nearly $60 million. 

Pasco has entered into financing agreements with private investors and developers, such as Harrod Properties, and 54 Venture to add more product to the County for tomorrow's growth. Learn more about our funded projects here.
