The value and the breakdown of the subsidy package are taken form: "Detail of Ohio's incentive package offered to USEC," The Associated Press State & Local Wire, February 18, 2004.

The $125 million subsidy package for locating a uranium enrichment plant in Ohio included: an estimated $64.3 million in various state tax subsidies for jobs creation and equipment purchases; $26 million in local property tax abatements and in other unspecified subsides; $20 million from the state to install air quality equipment; $7 million for roads and water infrastructure; $5.8 million in state business development grants; and $2 million for job training (parts of which are listed separately in the main Subsidy Tracker data for the years 2008- 2011 in Industrial Training Grant entries) . The state spent about $7.5 million to attract the deal (not included in the total). As of March 2013, the plant was still under construction.
