CREDC fosters financial growth and development within the Harrisburg region to improve the quality of life in our area and build a more economically sustainable future.


The Capital Region Economic Development Corporation (CREDC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As the economic development arm of the Harrisburg Regional Chamber, CREDC is the leading Certified Economic Development Organization for promoting and performing economic development activities in the Harrisburg region, consisting of Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties.  

What is economic Development?
Economic Development can be defined as initiatives seeking to improve the economic well-being and quality of life for a community by creating and retaining jobs, and supporting growth of incomes and tax bases. This can take many shapes and sizes, but here at the Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC we like to say we are working every day to make the Harrisburg region a better place to live, work and play.  

What does CREDC do?

CREDC’s work can be categorized into four key economic development initiatives: retaining existing businesses and workforce, supporting business growth and expansion efforts, attracting new and relocating businesses, and fostering business creation and innovation. CREDC accomplishes this through the utilization of economic development tools such as low-interest rate loan and grant programs, tax incentives, and more.
