OCEDC Mission - Established in 1989, the Oneida County Economic Development Corporation (OCEDC) stands as a collaborative initiative between the business sector and industrial entities. Our core mandate is to foster the growth of new businesses and support the expansion of existing enterprises within Oneida County.
Our mission is encapsulated in the following statement: "We are dedicated to fostering and facilitating the growth of robust businesses that offer sustainable, year-round employment opportunities in Oneida County, thereby enhancing the quality of life for its residents through the provision of livable wages."
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, OCEDC serves as the central coordinator for economic development initiatives across Oneida County. We offer assistance to those exploring business opportunities, aid existing businesses in their growth and sustainability efforts, and strive to attract new enterprises. This, in turn, diversifies our economic landscape and broadens employment options for the people of Oneida County. Additionally, OCEDC acts as a liaison, bridging the gap between businesses and governmental entities at local, regional, state, and federal levels.
