The mission of the Chaffee County Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) is to assure that Chaffee County is Open for Business and to retain, expand, and create jobs in Chaffee County. The CCEDC is comprised of a working board of successful local business people that are deeply rooted and representative of the community and have experience with a wide range of issues.

CCEDC’s goal is to facilitate the creation of living wage jobs and sustainable economic development within Chaffee County. The CCEDC Board is dedicated to enhancing local business and industry opportunities by serving as a “one-stop shop,” or single point of contact for businesses interested in expanding, initiating, or relocating their enterprise in Chaffee County. The Board members and Director have expertise in navigating local, county, state and federal governmental entities to leverage their resources in obtaining financial, technical, and informational assistance. The Corporation has established effective working relationships with the Upper Arkansas Area Council of Governments (UAACOG) to obtain Enterprise Zone Status; the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), which provides counseling, technical assistance, and office space to businesses that are growing or getting started; Colorado Mountain College (CMC), which provides educational programs; and the Southern Colorado Economic Development District (SCEDD).
