HEART, JEDCO’s economic development services program, was designed to pump resources and opportunities into the economy. Here’s how it works:
• Expansion: JEDCO can help businesses secure a larger space, access capital or seek tax incentives to encourage growth.
• Attraction: Showcasing Jefferson’s business-focused assets and strong quality of life bring new businesses to the area, creating jobs and investment.
• Retention: Heart-to-heart meetings help JEDCO take the pulse of local business and provide support where needed.
• Talent: Creating a pipeline of skilled workers to meet the needs of local industries is a key component of JEDCO ’s overall economic strategy.
