For the Business Community

Business Programs

PDC connects people and resources to create jobs, support business growth and revitalize neighborhoods. Guided by the agency's 2015-2020 Strategic Plan, PDC focuses on explicit investments in the fundamentals of economic development: business expansion and retention, workforce training, innovation, catalytic projects and an ecosystem that nurtures entrepreneurs and small businesses. We work with businesses, property owners and non-profits to identify needs and eligibility for assistance, and then find the program that fits best.
