The Partnership works closely with existing industry in the county to facilitate retention and expansion of quality jobs. This program focuses on removing obstacles that could prevent businesses from growing or remaining in operation, as well as connecting industry with resources that can encourage their growth and success.
HCPED actively promotes the assets of the area, often with like-minded organizations, to targeted sectors that value the strengths of our community. Approximately one-third of the annual budget goes towards activities focused on identifying and communicating with companies that might consider Henderson County as a prospective business location.
The Partnership works to identify, preserve, prepare and advance sites and buildings for existing and prospective clients. These efforts include site certification, monitoring land use designations and permitted uses, supporting infrastructure extensions and improvements and connecting clients with solutions to site and building needs.
HCPED cannot be successful unless clients find the area to be a competitive place to do business and a rewarding place to call home. A close working relationship with local units of government and elected state leadership, ensures an influence on public policy issues that can threaten or benefit the economic development climate of Henderson County and the companies that call us home.
