The Charles County EDD may approve permit expediting to help speed up the development approval process for qualifying businesses and projects.
Fee and Permit Waivers
While the County does not generally waive permit fees since most of these are paid to special or enterprise funds, waivers are permitted under special circumstances.
Workforce Training and Retraining
Based on eligibility, the County may provide a number of workforce training support solutions including:
- Customized Training Jobs Investment: Cash reimbursement for retraining employees of both new and existing companies. Usually requires threshold of minimum number of new jobs and investment.
- Small Businesses and New Jobs Retraining: Jobs must integrate new technology.
ED Incentive Opportunity Fund
