Incentives & Resources

Incentives Available Through
Apache Junction
City incentives are typically addressed through negotiated Development Agreements. Some factors directly influencing the level of incentive are:
  1. Amount of new/growth of local sales tax revenue,
  2. Amount of new capital investment resulting from the proposed project, and
  3. Number, type and annual payroll impact of jobs created or retained within Apache Junction.
The city recognizes that each prospect is unique and staff seeks to craft an incentive package that works for all parties involved based on the circumstances of each project. All Development Agreements are subject to the approval of the Apache Junction City Council.

If your project is in a designated redevelopment area there may be an opportunity for the city to assist with a portion of Development Fees.
