How will Dealership Incentives work?

Each month, local dealerships will be invited to list the deals and incentives that they'd like to promote, and Montgomery County will promote the incentives on our website, this newsletter, and social media.

This program will help consumers find the best deals available when they're ready to purchase or lease a vehicle. Deals will be available for a limited time only and there may not be deals available each month - but when deals are available, the Dealership Incentives page is where you can find them.
