In 2014 state and local governments provided $260 million in incentives over 16 years to Holtec International for a nuclear reactor manufacturing facility. The funding comes from state's Grow New Jersey Assistance Program, a corporate business tax credit, and also includes a Camden-specific provision that allows the amount of available subsidies to be equal to the investment. The company has to invest $260 million before it can claim the subsidy.
The GTA includes state guarantees and other financial incentives thatare likely to affect the restructuring and performance of firms facinginternational competition, whether from imports, in export markets, andfrom foreign subsidiaries.
