Duluth Economic Development assists companies in obtaining various state and local investment incentives.

Duluth is located in a Georgia Certified Work Ready Community and has access to Georgia’s internationally acclaimed workforce development program, Quick Start. This program provides training to new, expanding, and existing businesses.

Duluth’s healthy economic environment, competitive business community, exceptional quality of life and attractive business incentives make it the perfect location for companies to do business.

Companies relocating to or expanding in Duluth may qualify for business incentives. These incentives are administered through the County or State, and are typically awarded on a case-by-case basis depending on the type of company, a number of jobs created, wages, physical or geographical location, and capital investment. The thresholds to qualify for local incentives are lower for companies locating or expanding within a designated redevelopment area, such as a Tax Allocation District or Opportunity Zone.
