Incentives and Grants

Economic development pages button

The City of Newton offers economic development grants for companies seeking to relocate or expand within the city limits of Newton. The Commercial and Small Business Economic Development Incentives Policy is designed to stimulate private sector investment, economic growth and job creation in the City by offering grants to small businesses bringing new investment that will have a positive effect on the economic health of the community. 

The policy requires that each grant be governed by a grant agreement between the City and grantee. Grant agreements must be approved by Newton City Council.
