Blair County Expands I-99 KIZ Locations

Blair County Expands I-99 KIZ Locations

Blair County is part of the I-99 Corridor Keystone Innovation Zone, which is the largest KIZ in the Commonwealth and it continues to grow. In early December ABCD Corp. received confirmation that three additional geographic zones have been approved for Blair County and two for Centre County.

The KIZ program designates specialized locations that are designed to link emerging companies with higher education resources as well as offering financial incentives to those companies in the form of KIZ Tax Credits that can be sold by the company. In order for a company to qualify for these tax credits they must meet the following criteria:

  • Located within a qualified KIZ geographic area
  • Under 8 years in business
  • Meets targeted industry sectors

The I-99 Corridor KIZ has a long history of assisting companies and we are proud to announce the following additions for Blair County:

  • Former Bon Secours Hosptial Campus
  • 2 additional blocks in Downtown Altoona
  • Blair County Airport

These locations join the pre-existing areas of the South Altoona Business Park and Downtown Altoona. If you have any questions on locating your company in one of these zones or for more information on the KIZ program please contact Matt Fox at 814-944-6113 or mattf@abcdcorp.org
