  3. 3. 3 steps state legislatures can take to create smart incentives 1. Set clear goals for each incentive program • But allow flexibility on specific metrics 2. Request and fund regular program performance evaluation • Enable data sharing • Provide time and resources • Use reporting to improve not punish 3 3. Work with the executive and economic development office to improve program performance • On the same team – creating economic opportunities in your state • How can incentives support these efforts?
  4. 4. Business Incentives Initiative 4 • Identify effective ways to manage and assess incentive policies and practices • Improve data collection and analysis • Develop national standards and best practices that states can use to report on economic development incentives • Participating states: IN, LA, MD, MI, OK, TN, VA
  5. 5. 5 Takeaways • Incentives should be used to accomplish community goals – not just win a deal. • The problem is that we haven’t known which incentives actually help our communities. • Communities need better data and analytics throughout the process to identify what works and enable sound decisions when awarding incentives. • The next few years will see tremendous improvements in the way we talk about and evaluate incentives.
