Our Partners

By collaborating and aligning ourselves with the region’s economic, community, and workforce development stakeholders and partners, we can make more of a difference.


Capital Partners

To augment its internal economic development lending capacity and operation, and to ensure the optimal use of public funds, the Department of Development often utilizes partnerships by providing capital to organizations with niche market expertise. These organizations accumulate additional capital and provide it to businesses within the County.
