Welcome to Oneida County EDC
In 1989, the Oneida County Economic Development Corporation was created as a partnership between business and industry. We are responsible for new business growth and assisting our existing businesses with the expansion already located in Oneida County.

The mission of the Oneida County Economic Development Corporation is:
"To promote and stimulate the orderly growth of stable businesses which will provide year-round employment throughout Oneida County while maintaining a high quality of life with a livable wage."

As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) Corporation, we act as an economic development coordinator for all of Oneida County. Oneida County Economic Development Corporation assists individuals investigating the feasibility of going into business, works with existing business to expand and retain economic viability and works to attract new business in an effort to expand our economic base and provide employment alternatives to the citizens of Oneida County. We are also a conduit between business and government on a local, regional, state, and federal level.
