Economic Development Policy and Incentive Policy

City of Dallas Economic Development Policy 2023On January 25, 2023, the City Council unanimously approved an amended City of Dallas Economic Development Policy and approved a new Economic Development Incentive Policy. Both policies took effect immediately, upon approval.

The Economic Development Policy provides a new approach to economic development by proactively addressing economic inequalities and outcomes in historically underserved areas through policy, public investment and partnership.   The policy aligns with the City’s Racial Equity Plan and gives staff specific goals and practices to address disparities that have kept some areas from equitable economic development.
