Incentives

The City of Fishers and the State of Indiana offer various incentives to businesses relocating or expanding in the community. Untraditional incentives such as office furniture credits and traditional incentives are often combined for a custom economic development package built for your needs.

The City will consider incentives for eligible economic development projects that fit Fishers’ smart, vibrant, and entrepreneurial vision. The number of new jobs, wages, capital investment, industry, and location of the company are all factors taken into consideration when the City evaluates incentives. For additional information regarding eligibility and incentives, please contact Megan Baumgartner.
