Cook County Board Approves Three Tax Incentives Designed to Support Economic Growth

March 21, 2019

Cook County Commissioners today approved three proposals from President Toni Preckwinkle’s Bureau of Economic Development (BED) that will provide tax incentives to businesses in Cook County.

The incentives, which will either create new or save existing jobs, were approved in the following communities: Bellwood and Hodgkins.  

As a result of redevelopment activities, these incentives should support the creation of an estimated 15 new private sector full-time jobs and support 100 construction jobs.
