Progress Program

With the renewal of the optional quarter-cent sales tax for economic development in 2010, the GCEDC board of directors launched a new program to aid local businesses, communities, and organizations.

The goals of the Progress Program are to help businesses succeed by making their properties more attractive to their customers and to make communities more attractive to potential new businesses, employees, residents, and visitors.

Goshen County Economic Development Corporation strives to maintain accountability and transparency of the use of the 1/4 cent economic development sales tax funds.

Collected funds are used for the Progress Programs; Community Enhancement, Capital Matching, and Infrastructure Investment Fund. Started in 2011, the overall goal of the Progress Program is to help businesses succeed by making their properties more attractive to their customers, and make communities more attractive to potential new businesses, employees, residents, and visitors. Since it's inception over $1.1M has assisted 226 organizations, municipalities, and businesses.
