Enterprise Zone Program
The Alabama Enterprise Zone Act was passed by the Alabama Legislature in 1987. The act authorized state tax and nontax incentives, which are some of the best in the country. Twenty-eight Enterprise
Zones across the State encourage economic growth in areas considered to have depressed economies. Each area offers innovative packages of local tax and nontax incentives to encourage businesses to locate or expand in its Enterprise Zones. Two Enterprise Zones are located in the SEARP&DC Economic Development District, Barbour County and Covington County.
