The Economic Impact Group, LLC is an economic consulting firm that specializes in economic and fiscal analysis supporting local economic development. Founded in 2002, the company helps clients in both the public and private sectors understand how development impacts the local economy; how to measure, track, and forecast local economic performance; and how to calculate the return on tax-based economic development initiatives.

01 Tax Credit Analysis

The Economic Impact Group is a leading firm in the analysis of state tax credits, including the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) program and historic rehabilitation tax credits. Economists with EIG have provided studies that analyzed the economic and fiscal impact of state NMTC programs for the legislatures of Texas, Nevada, Utah, and Louisiana. EIG has also provided economic and fiscal impact analysis of historic rehabilitation tax credits for the legislatures of Kentucky, Florida, and Tennessee.

EIG also regularly provides investment-specific analysis for investments made under the Arkansas New Market Jobs Act (ARNJA); the Utah Small Business Jobs Act (USBJA); and the Invest CT Program in Connecticut.

EIG's clients include some of the top firms specializing in structured tax credit equity and debt financing.


Of course, the Economic Impact Group also conducts traditional economic impact analysis using IMPLAN, the most powerful and adaptable Input-Output analysis model available today. The team at EIG has decades of experience using IMPLAN, including conducting sophisticated multi-regional input-output analysis (MRIO). MRIO analysis tracks the movements of goods and services between all 3,440 counties in the nation and can isolate the indirect and induced impacts on a specific community, even when the direct economic impact occurs somewhere else.

Economic impact analysis done correctly can help you understand your core economy, identify your major producers, target areas for potential growth, isolate household spending patterns, and discover inter-industry linkages between your economy and those economies around you.

03 Local Economic Indexes

An economic index measures the alternating waves of economic expansion and contraction in an economy. Using data that is specific to your local economy, you can gain an understanding of what drives the local economy, and gauge where your economy has been and where it is going. With this information a local government and/or business decision-maker has a critical advantage enabling them to reduce their risk of being ill-equipped to deal with changes in their local economy.

The staff at the Economic Impact Group are recognized experts in the construction of local economic indexes. They present training seminars around the country that teach local economic development professionals how to build, develop and implement a local economic index. EIG can also build one for you and show you how to keep it updated. Click here for an example of an economic index done by EIG staff.

04 Tax Revenue Forecasting

The uncertainty of economic cycles makes it difficult for state and local governments to accurately forecast their revenues. Whether it was the collapse of the housing bubble, or rapidly expanding commercial growth, the tax digests of local governments across the country can be subject to external trends. Sales tax revenues are also subject to swings in the local economy. In this environment, it is more important than ever to have accurate revenue forecasts for planning and budgeting purposes. The team at the Economic Impact Group has years of experience building local government forecast models for sales tax, property tax, and other non-tax revenue streams.
