RAEDC Releases 2019 Results Report for Rockforward20/20

The Rockford Area Economic Development Council (RAEDC) has released the 2019 Results Report for the Rockforward20/20 strategic plan. This is the fourth year of a five-year initiative lead by the RAEDC.

The region is well on our way to completing the economic development impact measurements by December 31, 2020.

  • 67% completed of the 8 million square feet of new or renovated space goal
  • 70% completed of the 10,000 new or retained jobs goal
  • 133% 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.

The RAEDC works to attract businesses into the region as well as retain businesses that are already located here. The daily work of economic development cultivates primary job growth opportunities and increased economic well-being for the region.

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 Jarid Funderburg or call 815.969.4259.
