The Bullard EDC’s primary mission is to increase commercial development within the City of Bullard.  Incentives are used to help new businesses coming into the Bullard community or to help existing businesses expand their business within Bullard.

Incentive programs provide benefits to Bullard by lowering unemployment and increasing both sales and ad valorem tax revenue.

Development incentives are negotiated on a case-by-case basis to assist eligible companies to expand or locate to the Bullard area.  Whether any particular project is eligible for incentives will depend on a number of factors which include the types and numbers of jobs created, the type of product or service offered by the business, the type of business, the valuation of any new development, and projected sales tax revenues.

Incentives may be provided directly by the Bullard EDC, or in partnership with the City of Bullard or the Tyler Economic Development Council.
