Grants & Incentives

Companies new to Burlington or those who have been here decades are eligible for various incentives and sources of funds from local and state resources. These grants are based on a number of factors and can come from a wide variety of sources, most are contingent upon the industry, investment, and job creation; however, other resources are intended to reduce the cost of demolition, the reuse of historic buildings, brownfields or other environmental abatement, and many more programs aimed at specific issues. 

The City of Burlington is dedicated to providing its own incentives as well as being a conduit for state and regional incentive programs. Listed below are a few resources to consider when expanding your business and looking for incentives. Please give our office a call if you have any questions or would like to know more about expanding your business in Burlington.
