Goshen County Economic Development Corporation is a nonprofit organization, created in 1987 to create jobs, encourage business growth, and build on local community assets. GCEDC enjoys strong support from local business and industry, city and county government, and the citizens of Goshen County that were the first in Wyoming to approve a county sales tax for economic development.



The fundamental purpose of Goshen County Economic Development Corp. is to encourage job growth from primary employers that attract investment from outside the county to inject new dollars into the local economy.

The success of existing businesses is a top priority for Goshen County Economic Development Corporation.
