Subsidy Tracker Has More to Track

by

Subsidy Tracker, Good Jobs First’s database of company-specific info on economic development subsidies, has just completed the first of what we expect to be many expansions.

We have added data on 14 programs in four states, three of which are now represented in Tracker for the first time: Hawaii, Nebraska and Rhode Island. A list of the new programs is below. A new feature, the Update Log, lists these as well and will allow you to see at a glance what has been added to the database in the future.

Subsidy Tracker now contains more than 65,000 entries on 154 programs in 37 states.
