• Closed projects this fiscal year alone represent companies making a capital investment of $25M, utilizing over a half million square feet of space, and all while creating close to 350 new jobs.

• The region is home to educational partnerships dedicated to providing the skilled workforce needed for companies considering the region. The Glades is home to our County’s only Kindergarten through 12th grade International Baccalaureate Program, a hybrid model for technical training located at the West Technical Education Center, and employer ready programs offered from Palm Beach State College’s Belle Glade Campus.

• All three cities in the Glades fall within the State of Florida’s South Central Rural Area of Economic Opportunity (RAO). Provisions for projects considering the region include waivers for wage requirements as well as additional bonus amounts for participation in certain State incentive programs
