The Economic Development Arm of Harrisburg Regional Chamber
Who Are We?
The Capital Region Economic Development Corporation (CREDC), a private 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is the economic development arm of the Harrisburg Regional Chamber and the leading Certified Economic Development Organization promoting and performing economic development activities in the Harrisburg region, consisting of Cumberland, Dauphin, and Perry Counties.
What Is Economic Development?
Economic Development consists of 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 CREDC we like to say we are working every day to make the Region a better place to live, work and play.
What Does CREDC Do?
CREDC’s work can be categorized into four key initiatives: retaining existing businesses and workforce, supporting business growth and expansion, attracting new and relocating businesses, and fostering business creation and innovation. CREDC accomplishes this by helping businesses leverage private investment with public funding to create a bigger impact for the business and the economy. We will use our expertise in government financing programs to help you navigate all of your choices safely and wisely.
