Business Assistance

Economic Development Incentives Policy

 It is the policy of the City of Asheville to provide economic development grants for companies and industries seeking to relocate and expand business. The Economic Development Incentives Policy is design to stimulate private sector investment, economic growth and job creation in the city by offering grants consistent with this policy and availability of funds.

Minority Business

Through the Minority Business Program, the City of Asheville actively seeks to identify minority businesses and offer them an opportunity to participate as providers of goods and services to the city. The intent of the program is to widen opportunities for participation, increase competition and to ensure the proper and diligent use of public funds.  

Workforce Development

Through the Workforce Development Program, the City of Asheville works with a network of partners to assist Asheville residents, especially low-income workers and communities of color, to access the education and training they need to be ready for high-quality jobs.
