The City of Cibolo offers many local development incentives that can be used to help offset the costs
associated with the location and expansion of an eligible business to the community. As such, our Economic
Development team is prepared to help you realize these opportunities and any incentives that may be
available. Below is a list of the most common local incentives that can potentially be applied to your planned
investment. All incentives are on a case-by-case basis, and interested parties are invited to contact EDC staff
to explore these and other options.

Tax Abatement/Tax Phase-In - The City considers Tax Abatement/Phase-In based upon the new tax base
value the project will bring to the city, as well as the number and type of jobs a project will create or retain.

Municipal Grants and Loans - The City of Cibolo may provide grants through a portion of sales tax revenue
collected to promote economic development activity within the city. Eligible projects may contract with the City
to receive sales tax grants, franchise fee grants, water or sewer line extensions, building permit fee waivers,
grants for capital recovery fees and/or workforce development training.

Tax Increment Financing (TIF) - Tax increment financing is a tax reinvestment tool that allows local
governments to publicly fund needed structural improvements and enhanced infrastructure within a defined
area. TIFs can be created on a case-by-case basis by the Cibolo City Council.

State of Texas, Office of the Governor - Texas is an attractive relocation and expansion location because the
state works hard to develop and sustain a business-friendly operating environment. State government provides
tax incentives, financing assistance and an array of services to help companies establish or expand in Texas.
