Amazon seeking $4.5 million from state for distribution center
From Delaware Business Now
Amazon plans to seek $4.5 million from the Delaware Strategic Fund for a fulfillment center.
An agenda item from the Delaware Council on Development Finance contained the request from Amazon and listed Wilmington as the location. The council will hold a meeting on Monday.
The Strategic Fund ties assistance from the state to the number of jobs created by the employer. Payback comes from additional income tax revenues.
The council passes its recommendations on to the state’s director of Small Business.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported the request is related to a proposed distribution center at the former GM Boxwood plant west of Wilmington.
