The Office of Data Infrastructure Administration and Security is leading the state’s efforts to strengthen Connecticut’s competitive edge in the digital economy. The office can partner with qualified developers of data centers and offer tax incentives to help offset the development costs of facilities that store and process data.
The office serves as the liaison between applicants and qualified data centers and other state agencies; assists with the pre-application phase to the post-operational stage; and ensures coordinated, efficient, and timely responses to applicants.
To support the growth of data centers and other high-tech industries, the State of Connecticut passed legislation to induce data centers to locate in the state. The Data Center Tax Incentive Program allows DECD to provide tax exemptions to eligible data centers that locate within the state and make a minimum investment.
