• Relocating to Central Texas

  • As your company plans its relocation to Austin or expands its existing Austin location, the City's Economic Development Department staff can help. They process incentive applications, assist with zoning and planning issues, and do what it takes to make your process fast and easy.

    EDD staff can provide information about incentives and help connect you with the resources you need to make your relocation or expansion successful. EDD staff works 1-on-1 with companies as well as with local partner and community organizations.

    • Assisting companies with international business opportunities and expanding abroad
    • Attracting foreign direct investment
    • Fostering a healthy business climate to integrate the region’s industrial, financial, and commercial institutions into the world economy
    • Facilitating international exchanges in commerce, education, and culture
    • Supporting activities that encourage the understanding and appreciation of other cultures, nationalities and faiths
