Economic Development

Since the reorganization of the Urban Development Office in 1984, the agency has assumed additional responsibilities in the areas of economic development. This means utilizing community statistics and resources and coordinating them to fit business needs. It also means being involved in attracting and facilitating extremely exciting new businesses and new business deals for the community.

For example, the Urban Development Office works with the Grand Forks Region Economic Development Corporation to assist businesses and industries wishing to expand or locate in Grand Forks by helping secure funding through various local, State, and Federal resources.

With the grantmanship available through the Urban Development Office, the City has been successful in securing grants and loans to update the Grand Forks Industrial Park. The office also offers assistance through new or expanding businesses and developing business plans.
