Economic Development

The Staples Economic Development Authority works hard to attract new businesses and to assist existing businesses with their expansion needs, utilizing various financing and incentive programs.

The City of Staples has more than 200 acres included in the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development’s Job Opportunity Building Zones (JOBZ) program. These JOB Zones are a tool that used to stimulate business activity in the City of Staples. These tax incentives help new and expanding businesses lower their overall costs and facilitate growth in the community. Traditional financing as well as Tax Increment Financing is available to qualifying businesses.
