GCEDC About and Mission

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.

The Genesee County Economic Development Center's vision is to foster increased economic activity for our community by providing a high quality of life for our residents and their families. The GCEDC will enable this by progressively marketing our community to businesses facilitating business capital investment which contributes to the creation and retention of quality jobs.
The GCEDC is the primary economic development agency in Genesee County, NY.  The GCEDC's mission is to provide the resources to foster community economic success and facilitate new business attraction in order to build a sustainable long-term economy.  This is done through growth, expansion and retention of our existing business base and marketing our community as "business friendly" to attract new businesses.  To accomplish its mission, GCEDC provides a variety of financial incentives, technical assistance and other forms of direct support to enable companies to succeed in the global economy.
