In order to be eligible for the program, a business MUST pre-certify annually with an application for EACH location within the Zone. For locations outside of Mesa County, see the EZ map for which Enterprise Zone, if any, the application would be made in).
Pre-certification applications can be made up to 90 days in advance of the business’ fiscal year (i.e., for a calendar year, the business may pre-certify as early as October 1 for the following year).
Pre-certification is NOT retroactive, so any business investment made during the fiscal year BEFORE pre-certification is done would NOT be eligible.
