Economic Development

Wayne County Economic Development is a combined department with the Wayne County Planning Department. We work with local government to combine the essential elements of planning and regional growth through business development, workforce assistance, and community planning through one multi-faceted team. 

Our Economic Development department delivers an array of business loans and state grant funding to qualified recipients. We also manage the county's Industrial Development Agency (IDA), Wayne Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), and the Civic Facilities Development Corporation (CFDC) all of which offer specialized and in-depth financial assistance to industrial and small business ventures.  In addition, our Department oversees a number of industrial parks that are prime locations for new business development.

Looking Forward

With a modern infrastructure in place and improving all the time, Wayne County is ideally positioned for industrial growth and comfortable living in the years ahead. We invite you to be part of it.
