Subsidy Tracker Completes Online Data Capture


Subsidy Tracker, the Good Jobs First database of company-specific information on economic development subsidies, has reached a new milestone: We have finished capturing all available online data from state programs around the country. The database now contains more than 112,000 entries from 246 programs in 41 states. A complete list of sources is here.

Our latest batch of new data covers 16 additional programs in six states. One of those states is South Dakota, which recently began publishing subsidy recipient data for all of its largest programs. Alabama appears in Tracker for the first time with data on its Industrial Development Training program. We also expanded the number of years covered for 53 programs in 15 states. See below for a full list of recent changes.

Now that we have completed assembling data from a vast array of online sources, we will focus our attention on getting more unpublished data from state agencies, especially those states that don’t have any online recipient disclosure. Subsidy Tracker already contains unpublished data from 14 programs in 11 states. We will also begin to look at selected local subsidy programs.

We have made improvements to the search engine, including a new feature that displays state-specific dropdown menus for categories such as program name, city and county. This allows for more focused searches.
