Economic Development

Wayne County Economic Development office is combined with the Wayne County Planning office. We work with local companies to successfully achieve the benefits of business development and strategic planning. Our team promotes and delivers financial incentives that fit the needs of our local business community. From agricultural and industrial development to kick-starting small businesses, we are the premier resource for all business development in Wayne County, New York.

Our Economic Development department delivers an array of business loans and state grant funding to qualified recipients. We also manage the county's Industrial Development Agency (IDA), Wayne Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), and the Civic Facilities Development Corporation (CFDC) all of which offer specialized and in-depth financial assistance to industrial large-scale companies, small to mid-size business, or non-profit civic facility ventures.  In addition, our Department oversees a number of industrial parks that are prime locations for new business development.
