Topic - Economic Revitalization

This page summarizes KnowledgePlex content about Economic Revitalization.

Activities on the part of government, community-based organizations, or business groups to improve the economic health of an impoverished area are an important aspect of community development. Typically, such programs aim to entice businesses to relocate (or stay) in the economic development zone, improve the occupational and academic skills of local residents, encourage the creation and retention of new jobs, and encourage entrepreneurship and the formation of new businesses. A wide variety of tax credits, hiring subsidies, property improvement, and other incentives may be used.
