Partners in Growth

The City of Erie and associated economic development organizations provide substantial assistance to businesses that launch or relocate downtown. For a full conversation about what programs are available, we recommend contacting the city's Department of Community and Economic Development. Forms of assistance may include access to the city's revolving loan fund, zoning changes, inspections, various state and federal tax credit programs, and connections to venture capital through the federally designated Opportunity Zones.
