Notes: 

In 2019, Missouri legislators approved a bill that will provide GM with $50 million in tax credits. In return, the company will retool and upgrade its Wentzville assembly plant. At the time of the bill passing, the number of jobs GM is required to retain was not set. The company has received multiple state and local subsidy awards over the years and those awards can be found in Subsidy Tracker. This entry, however, represents a new award and thus there are no overlaps in Subsidy Tracker.
