Performance Agreement | Fort Bend Economic Development Council

Chapter 381 of the Local Government Code allows Fort Bend County to enter into a performance agreement.  The agreement provides incentives encouraging developers to build in the county's jurisdiction, but they must meet specific requirements lined out in the agreement such as job creation or investment. A county may administer and develop a program to make loans and grants of public money to promote state or local economic development and to stimulate, encourage and develop business location and commercial activity in the county.

Economic incentives offered by Fort Bend County and approved by the county commissioners court are negotiated on a case-by-case basis and subject to the conditions and requirements described within the agreement.  The Fort Bend Economic Development Council will negotiate agreements with qualified companies on behalf of Fort Bend County.

Please contact the Fort Bend Economic Development Council for more information or to begin the incentive application process.

Most cities within Fort Bend County offer incentive packages to qualified companies as well.  Companies are encouraged to contact city representatives for information on what is available in each municipality.

Workforce training and other area and state assistance may be available, and FBEDC staff can direct companies to available local resources.

The FBEDC will assist with other areas and state assistance if applicable.  

Please reach out to the EDC staff at 281-240-0000 or for further information.
