The value of the subsidy package is taken from "Dell Computers: Nashville Tenn.; 3,000 Jobs; $200 Million," a part of the Site Selection Top Ten Deals of 1999, Site Selection Magazine, May 2000; available online at: http://www.siteselection.com/issues/2000/may/p400/pg02.htm. The breakdown of the subsidy package and the jobs projections are taken from: Richard Locker, "Nashville wins Dell Computer with hefty incentives," The Commercial Appeal, May 7, 1999.

Notes: 

The $166 million subsidy package was reported by The Site Selection magazine; the local media reports did not produce the total value of the subsidy package but provided information on elements of the package. On the state level, Dell received: about $12 million for infrastructure assistance from the Tennessee Industrial Infrastructure Program and the Tennessee Department of Transpiration; up to $20 million for job training; one-time job tax credit of $2,000 per employee; industrial machinery tax credits; and a $500 per job per year infrastructure credit. The local subsides included: free land valued at $6.5 million, a 40-year property tax abatement, $8 million in infrastructure improvements, and $1.5 million for the site preparation. In 2002 Dell announced that it was relocating the assembly operations at the Nashville plant to another facility in Tennessee. Overlaps with main Subsidy Tracker data: none.
