The Rockford Area Economic Development Council (RAEDC) has released the 2017 Results Report for the Rockforward20/20 strategic plan. This is the second year of a five-year initiative lead by the RAEDC, as the data collection agency for the region.

The region is well on our way to completing the economic development impact measurements by the year 2020.

  • 25% completed of the 8 million square feet of new or renovated space goal
  • 37% completed of the 10,000 new or retained jobs goal
  • 77% completed of the $925 million capital investment goal

The important work of improving our economic strength and competitiveness is made possible only through the collaboration and support of our RAEDC investors and we are grateful for the support we receive. Not only does the RAEDC help companies grow, we also position our region as an ideal location for businesses and industries. The significant work of building a stronger and more sustainable economy must continue.

The daily work of economic development is made possible through the support of our investors, stakeholders, and community members. To find out how to support the RAEDC and our community contact Jimsi Kuborn at JKuborn@RockfordIL.com or 815.969.4259.
