New Job Creation & Talent Attraction Program

CRA Job Creation and Talent Attraction Picture

The CRA’s program will incentivize 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 City of Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) is proud to announce the new Job Creation & Talent Attraction Program.

Targeted industries eligible for the program include research and development in the physical, engineering, computer or life sciences; light assembly, packaging and fabrication associated with research and development in the physical, engineering, computer or life sciences; software, computing and technology; light manufacturing; and general office.

This program will incentivize 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. Companies can earn up to $8,000 when a new employee is living and working in a CRA area.

Currently, funding for the new Job Creation & Talent Attraction Program is only available in the Downtown redevelopment area.

Companies who participate will then help lower vacancy rates, increase employment levels, raise tax base, diversify economic opportunities and promote redevelopment goals. The long-term objective will be to alleviate economic distress and, overall, help the area become self-sustaining while serving to implement the redevelopment plans for each of the Fort Myers redevelopment areas.

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