Huntsville is pledging $320 million in incentives, which helped drive in that $1.6 billion project. The incentives are broken down by direct and nondirect deal incentives.

The nondirect incentives are existing projects being fast-tracked under this new deal. The direct incentives amount over $90 million and will come from money the city borrows and from taxes generated by future development on the site.

The state is providing approximately $380 million in incentives, including a 10-year jobs credit worth more than $90 million and investment credits worth $210 million.
