Economic Development

The City of Rowlett Incentives Policy encourages new investment and business attraction through the utilization of grants, fee waivers or reductions, performance-based job creation grants, and/or other redevelopment grants, as authorized by Chapter 380.001 of the Texas Local Government Code.

It is the City's ultimate goal to provide transparency about economic development incentives and their intended purpose. The following incentives have been granted: impact fee grants, waiver/reduction of permit fees; property tax rebates; TIRZ reimbursements; and economic development grants for land, infrastructure, grease traps, and tenant improvements.
