The value of the main subsidy and the jobs and investment projections came from: Elizabeth Crisp, "New jobs headed to Hattiesburg," Jackson Clarion-Ledger, January 5, 2011. Also see the 2012 Mississippi Incentives Report obtained by the Bigger Pie Forum and posted at http://www.biggerpieforum.org/blog/mississippi-incentives-report-2012-0.
The state provided a $75 million low-cost loan from the Mississippi Industry Incentive Financing Revolving Fund. The city and county provided a fee-in-lieu-of-ad-valorem-taxes agreement, the value of which was not reported (Terry L. Jones, "Solar panel company gets local tax incentives," Hattiesburg American, January 6, 2011). Overlaps with main Subsidy Tracker data: a $75 million Industry Incentive Financing Revolving Fund entry. There are also two Workforce Education training program entries totaling $66,168 for 2011 and an Advantage Jobs entry for 2012 with no amount available.
