About Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC)

The Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC), formerly known as the Genesee County Industrial Development Agency, was formed in 1970 under Section 18-A of New York State’s General Municipal Law and is the County’s primary designated agency for the promotion of economic development and economic growth.  The agency was reorganized to its current form in 1979.  The GCEDC is governed by a seven member, non-compensated, Board of Directors that is made up of business and community leaders that are appointed by the Genesee County Legislature.
