Our Mission

For more than 60 years, the Somerset County Economic Development Council has worked to strengthen the local economy. Since our founding in 1957 we have been a community minded non-profit organization remaining true to our fundamental mission -

To help existing companies retain or expand employment and when possible recruit and assist new firms to locate in the county.

By operating as a public-private partnership, we strive to cultivate a sustainable region by assisting our over 150 members and prospective members with opportunities of low-cost loans and grant funding from various local, public and private contributors and foundations.
