Subsidy Tracker Data Now Searchable Within More Than 10,000 Localities
Subsidy Tracker, the nation’s only public and free database of economic development incentive awards, today introduced a new feature that allows the user to display summary data for more than 10,000 different localities across the country. The summaries, like those previously provided for states, show subsidy totals and list the biggest recipient companies along with links to each individual entry.
Subsidy Tracker is produced by Good Jobs First and is available on its website at http://www.goodjobsfirst.org/subsidy-tracker
“This new tool offers taxpayers an easy way to see where their locality’s economic development dollars are going,” said Kasia Tarczynska, the Research Analyst at Good Jobs First who leads the Subsidy Tracker data collection effort.
Other new features in the database, which already links companies named in individual awards to their corporate parents, include pages summarizing subsidies by industry and by the state or country in which parent companies are located.
