Invests in Possibilities to Live and Work in Scott County
We're More Than Rooftops
Scott County Community Development Agency is a local government entity that supports flourishing communities throughout the county.

Business Incentives & Support
Access to capital is critical for growing your business, and our communities have a number of incentives that can boost your businesses to the next level. Our team can work with you to unlock local, state, and federal support such as grants, tax incentives, workforce development, and retention programs, and assistance to develop streets and roads or other infrastructure needs.
Our goal? Have enough jobs in the county for 50% of our workforce to be able to live and work right here, close to home. We’d love to have you; please check out a few of our current incentives below.
