What kinds of assistance does the City of Bristol Development Authority provide to businesses?
It depends upon the type of business (manufacturing, distribution, research, or retail), the stage of development (in business or a start-up), and what the needs are (relocation, new construction, renovation, and so on), but there are several common forms of assistance. These include tax abatements, grants, and referrals to loan providers. The city can combine local assistance programs with state programs.
