Economic Development

Communities across New York share the goal of making each corner of the state a better place to work, live, and visit. County economic developers facilitate growth by attracting new businesses, while promoting the retention and expansion of existing businesses and core industries. As communities grow and enhance the opportunities for job creation, New Yorkers have more reasons to continue to call this state their home.
