The Copperas Cove Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) can offer incentives to companies considering expansion or relocation to Copperas Cove, Texas. CCEDC incentives are based on job creation and capital investment and are primarily intended for light manufacturing and industrial development, and warehousing and distribution centers. However, we are not limited to only those types of projects.
Incentives are available through the City, County and State levels. Each incentive package offered is tailored to the individual company seeking incentives; no two packages are exactly alike.
