Within the Starke County Economic Development Foundation, there are numerous resources available to assist in your housing plans, relocation issues, entertainment, business structures and more.

Tax phase-in (tax abatement) is available for revitalization areas in Starke County. For information about eligibility and the tax phase-in process, refer to the Tax Abatement & Criteria document.

Once tax-phase-in is granted, there are local annual reporting documents that must be filed.
