About GCEDC

Greene County Economic Development Corporation (GCEDC) was formed when the need for a professionally organized economic development operation was recognized. Purdue University initially helped to fund GCEDC; with support from the county, GCEDC incorporated in 1989. GCEDC became the agency responsible for initiating economic development activities on behalf of Greene County. GCEDC is a private, not-for-profit organization run by an eleven-member board of directors. 

GCEDC's mission is to: "enhance the quality of life for Greene County, Indiana residents by fostering an environment that will create and retain jobs, increase the tax base and promote economic growth." 

GCEDC's primary activities include:

  • Maximize the extensive agricultural resources that include farmland and timberland

  • Develop the tourism industry, anchored by the Goose Pond Fish & Wildlife area that is drawing national attention

  • Lower the area’s decreasing unemployment rate by focusing on the workforce development needs of our employers and skill set of our current workforce

  • Engage with our local communities and organizations, developing partnerships and relationships, to benefit Greene County

  • Nurture a business-friendly environment that supports the retention and expansion of our existing businesses

  • Attract new businesses into the community, creating additional jobs and expanding our tax base

  • Encourage youth to return to Greene County upon completing their education to live, work and raise their families.

  • Further development of WestGate@Crane, Indiana’s only tri-county certified technology park
