Notes: 

VAdata, Amazon?s subsidiary, plans to build five data centers in Umatilla County. If they are fully built, the company can benefit from approximately $176 million in property tax abatements over 15 years. This is the first use of SIP by Amazon or any data center (Amaozn has been benefiting from other programs in the state). Jobs, wages and investment figures are projected if the full build-out occurs. Overlap with main Subsidy Tracker data: none
