MISSION — In their ongoing quest to attract more business, the Mission Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) last week approved a new list of guidelines to entice future commerce with incentive programs.
Last week, city leaders said the programs would help enhance or create new jobs in Mission. The eight programs include programs like job training and tax abatement.
The incentive guidelines will also include state programs like the Texas Enterprise Zone Program, which is designed to create jobs in areas of distress. Because Mission is an area with high unemployment rates compared to the rest of the state, as well as many low-wage earners, the city qualifies for the program.
