Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will on Sunday submit for Cabinet approval a 166 million shekel plan for economic benefits for Sderot and the area adjacent to Gaza.

The 2014 plan includes a series of benefits for residents of the area: Tax benefits, local property tax benefits, exemptions from leasing fees, daycare benefits, investments in infrastructures and local authorities, benefits for industry, agriculture, trade and employment, and expanded medical and social welfare services.
Among the benefits are 20% tax credits, a 30% discount in local property taxes on residences, subsidized daycare, economic assistance to local authorities (8 million shekels for the Sderot municipality and 5 million shekels for regional councils), an employment track for the absorption of new workers in the area, a 24% discount in local property taxes for industry, trade and services, a 15% preference in the allocation of foreign workers for agriculture, subsidies for new dairy farms and exemptions from Israel Land Authority leasing fees.
