The Amarillo EDC's mission is to promote business expansion in the greater Amarillo area that builds a stronger, more diversified economy and increases the economic vitality and wealth of the community.
To do so, the Amarillo EDC focuses on three primary functions for economic growth:
• Attracting new, primary businesses and industry to the Amarillo area that will create skilled, high-wage primary jobs.
• Assisting existing primary business and industry with growth and expansion plans through a pro-active business retention and expansion program.
• Creating a business environment conducive to entrepreneurship by providing financial support and technical assistance to primary businesses in collaboration with partner agencies
The Amarillo EDC assists primary businesses, which are companies that sell or provide the majority of their products or services outside the Texas Panhandle region, and do not compete directly with existing local businesses.
The AEDC provides aggressive business incentive programs funded from the proceeds of a half-cent sales tax for economic development.
