The City of Moline is committed to providing assistance with development, redevelopment and overall business establishment within the City. The City of Moline has numerous economic resources in place to not only assist new businesses, but also existing businesses. We also have developed an Economic Development Policy to assist those seeking incentives. 

In addition, the City can provide you with valuable resources for all stages of your business development such as demographic information, traffic counts, assistance identifying available commercial and industrial sites, as well as, assistance purchasing City-owned properties.

Our interactive web-maps also make it easy to not only identify a property’s zoning district but also whether a particular property is located within a Historic District, a Tax Increment Financing District, a Business District, a Special Service Area, or the Enterprise Zone. This information is important so that you are able to take advantage of all the incentives available to you.

If the property you are interested in is not located within an economically incentivized district, the City also offers a Revolving Loan Program to assist with gap financing for a new project. Depending on the size of the project, the City is also able to offer property and sales tax rebates to vital projects within the City.

New and existing business are also able to take advantage of the Facade Improvement Program that is specifically designed to assist with restoration and rehabilitation of street facing storefronts which can also be used in conjunction with other incentives.

No matter the route, we are here for you every step of the way!
