The State of North Carolina, the County of Surry and the four municipalities partner in proactively identifying Incentive and Grant opportunities for relocating and expanding companies based on new taxable investments including new construction, facility up-fit, and investments in machinery and equipment as well as new job creation.
The State of North Carolina currently provides discretionary and tax incentives to qualifying businesses in Surry County based on its Tier 1 designation. The state’s incentives are described as follows:
The County of Surry historically partners with the municipalities to develop an incentive agreement based on a case-by-case project to maximize the overall incentive opportunities and usually with a matching component. The municipality and County incentives are described as follows:
North Carolina's Community College Systems and Workforce Development Boards offer economic development tools for job creation with training and recruiting through regional and local community colleges. The Surry Community College Customized Industrial Training Program allows for new grants and continual employee training based on the company’s training plans and needs.

Also, the County of Surry and the municipalities will pursue other grant opportunities through Golden Leaf Foundation based on the project specifications.
