Missouri Manufacturing Jobs Program

To support Missouri’s manufacturers, the state provided incentives in the form of withholding taxes to expand manufacturing facilities for an existing product. Projects involved a capital investment as well as the creation and/or retention of jobs. This program expired in 2016.
