CHOCTAW, Miss. – Choctaw Employment Advantage, a new incentive program provided by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, offers rental discounts to commercial tenants leasing Tribal buildings.
Businesses that lease space on Choctaw Tribal lands are eligible for rental discounts when they employ Choctaw Tribal members. Monthly rental payments will be reduced in increments of $500 for every five Tribal members with at least 90 days of full-time employment by tenants as of the date the monthly rental payment is due.
“This is an effort for the Tribe to not only attract more commercial tenants to our available buildings, but also to provide employment opportunities for our Tribal members,” said MBCI Tribal Chief Cyrus Ben. “We have several move-in ready facilities that can be leased, and we want to offer a competitive advantage for those companies looking to begin or expand a business operation.”
