In accordance with California Assembly Bill No. 562 (AB 562), this page provides information about the businesses that have received an economic development incentive award greater than $100,000 from the City of San Diego. AB 562 requires “any expenditure of public funds or loss of revenue to a local agency in the amount of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) or more, for the purpose of stimulating economic development within the jurisdiction of a local agency, including, but not limited to, bonds, grants, loans, loan guarantees, enterprise zone or empowerment zone incentives, fee waivers, land price subsidies, matching funds, tax abatements, tax exemptions, and tax credits.”

Beginning Jan. 1, 2014, AB 562 required the City of San Diego’s Economic Development Department to provide specified information to the public before approving an economic development award of funds within its jurisdiction, and to review, hold hearings and report on those awards at specified intervals.
