Evaluation of Maine Business Tax Expenditure Programs

EDR Group is currently providing technical support to the Maine Legislature’s "Office of Program Evaluation and Government Accountability" OPEGA) to evaluate the state's various economic development incentive programs.  The initial phase involves evaluations of the following three programs:

  • Employment Tax Increment Financing (ETIF),
  • Pine Tree Development Zones, and
  • Maine New Markets Capital Investment Program.

The evaluation work includes surveying of participants, economic impact modeling to estimate broader economic conequences of business growth impacts, and quasi-experimental statistical analysis to sort out net progam impacts from gross observed pre/post changes.  EDR Group's work will help the Maine Legislature promote economic growth by improving program design, monitoring and effectiveness.
