The Advantage Mississippi Initiative was outlined and developed and enacted into law in August 2000. The Advantage Mississippi Initiative is a blueprint to expand prosperity throughout our entire state. This initiative includes not only new business incentives but comprehensive programmatic changes designed to enhance Mississippi’s competitive position in the nation and the world.
Growth & Prosperity Program
The Growth and Prosperity Program ("GAP"), administered by the Mississippi Development Authority (“MDA”), is a program designed for designating certain counties as GAP counties and making incentives available to private companies that locate or expand in those economically challenged areas of the state.
