Border City Enterprise Zone

Moorhead’s state-funded Border City Enterprise Zone Fund is used for a number of different economic development tools. The most prominent tool is the Workers’ Compensation Rebate Program which rebates a portion of the workers’ compensation expense paid by businesses.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION REBATE - 2017 (Pay 2018) Program Year

This program provides an annual credit based on actual workers’ compensation expense to businesses that apply. For the 2017 (pay 2018) program the Moorhead EDA has restored funding of this program to 20% reimbursement of workers’ compensation expenses. Based on 2016 participation levels, this program will rebate approximately $450,000 back to Moorhead businesses.

For more information on participating in this program, contact the Moorhead EDA.
