FieldEdge, the company that invented service software for contractors, was approved to participate in Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency’s (CRA) Job Creation & Talent Attraction Program. CRA commissioners approved FieldEdge’s application, and the firm is eligible to receive up to $6,000 if the new employee is both working and residing in a redevelopment area.

This program incentivizes the creation and retention of full-time employment within the Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Areas by offering a grant payment to companies that create or relocate high wage full-time jobs within an area. 

The objective of the Fort Myers CRA Job Creation Incentive is to alleviate blight and economic distress. Companies creating or relocating jobs to their redevelopment areas (RA) will help to lower vacancy rates, increase employment levels, raise the tax base, diversify economic opportunities and promote redevelopment goals. The encouragement of private enterprise will help the RA become self-sustaining in the long term and serves to implement the redevelopment plans for each of the Fort Myers RA’s. The program is consistent with meeting redevelopment objectives, specifically: 

•    Economic Development, Commercial and Business Activity

•    Economic Development, Business Retention and Recruitment 


For more information on how to participate in the program, visit www.cityftmyers.com/craincentives.
