    Sec. 5. Definitions. In this Act:
    "Location efficient" means a project that maximizes the

    "Location efficiency report" means a report that is
     prepared by an applicant for increased State economic development assistance under Section 10 and follows this Act and any related Department guidelines, and that describes the existence of (i) affordable workforce housing or (ii) accessible and affordable mass transit or its equivalent.
    "Employee housing or transportation remediation plan"
     means a plan to increase affordable housing or transportation options, or both, for employees earning up to the median annual salary of the workforce at the project. The plan may include, but is not limited to, an employer‑financed or assisted housing program that can be supplemented by State or federal grants, shuttle services between the place of employment and existing transit stops or other reasonably accessible places, facilitation of employee carpooling, or similar services.
     "Accessible and affordable mass transit" means access to
     transit stops with regular and frequent service within one mile from the project site and pedestrian access to transit stops.
    "Affordable workforce housing" means owner‑occupied or
     rental housing that costs, based on current census data for the municipality where the project is located or any municipality within 3 miles of the municipality where the project is located, no more than 35% of the median salary at the project site, exclusive of the highest 10% of the site's salaries. If the project is located in an unincorporated area, "affordable workforce housing" means no more than 35% of the median salary at the project site, excluding the highest 10% of the site's salaries, based on the median cost of rental or of owner‑occupied housing in the county where the unincorporated area is located.
    "Department" means the Department of Commerce and
     Economic Opportunity (DCEO) or its successor agency.
    "Applicant" means a company or its representative that

    (a) An applicant that also wants to be considered for increased economic development assistance under this Act shall submit a location efficiency report.
    (b) DCEO may give an applicant an increased tax credit or extension if the applicant's location efficiency report demonstrates that the applicant is seeking assistance for a project to be located in an area that satisfies this Act's standards for affordable workforce housing or affordable and accessible mass transit. If the Department determines from the location efficiency report that the applicant is seeking assistance in an area that is not location efficient, the Department may award an increase in State economic development assistance if an applicant (i) submits, and the Department accepts, an applicant's employee housing and transportation remediation plan or (ii) creates jobs in a labor surplus area as defined by the Department of Employment Security at the end of each calendar year.
    (c) Applicants locating or expanding at location‑efficient sites, with approved location efficiency plans, or creating jobs in labor surplus areas may receive (i) up to 10% more than the maximum allowable tax credits for which they are eligible under the Economic Development for a Growing Economy Tax Credit Act (EDGE), but not to equal or exceed 100% of the applicant's tax liability, or (ii) such other adjustment of those tax credits, including but not limited to extensions, as the Department deems appropriate.
