Amazon announced Monday that it had received 238 proposals from local officials across North America for its second headquarters in North America.

Jurisdictions have been scrambling to entice Amazon with massive tax breaks to attract the $5 billion in construction investments and 50,000 jobs that would come with the proposed campus.

The deadline for cities to submit their pitches passed earlier this month.

It’s still unclear how Amazon plans to whittle down the number of applications or when it plans to announce its selection. But the company has said it expects to make a decision sometime in 2018.

Amazon also specified that it was looking for a “stable and business-friendly environment” in which to expand beyond their original Seattle headquarters.
