The MOKAN Partnership is directly underwritten by business and public leaders who recognize that diverse and healthy commerce is critical in achieving a strong economy. All seven counties in our Joplin region three-state service area benefit from some of the nation's lowest cost of living and corporate tax rates. This doesn't mean our residents and employers receive lower-quality services—it means our public leaders make strategic decisions and steward taxpayer resources.
Each of the Joplin region's cities and states offer a variety of opportunity zones and unique incentives that reward companies making major investments and creating jobs and wealth in our area. Many of these incentives can be customized for the needs of your business based on the size of capital investment and/or the number of jobs created. You’ll find general details in the links below, but we encourage you to contact us to discuss your specific needs. We can leverage the programs and benefits to do the most for you.
