Every project is unique, which is why the Wilkes Economic Development Corporation helps new and existing companies evaluate how the incentive and grant process can benefit them. WEDC has extensive knowledge about incentives and grants available through state and local programs. When companies are adding new jobs, considering new construction, upfiting a facility, or investing in machinery and equipment, it is our role to help determine if your company is eligible and then facilitate the process.

State Incentives

The State of North Carolina currently provides discretionary and tax incentives to qualifying businesses in Wilkes County based on its Tier 2 designation. WEDC has extensive knowledge about these programs.
