The Grand Forks Growth Fund, established in 1987, is the City's Primary economic development financing program. It has been managed since 1995 by the Growth Fund, a Jobs Development Authority with advice from the Growth Fund Committee.
The Grand Forks Growth Fund, a Jobs Development Authority (JDA), through direct and indirect actions, will encourage the creation of new jobs, enhance the economic climate, save existing jobs, create new wealth, enhance the local property tax base, encourage capital investment, improve the quality of life, enhance tourism and local events, promote public, private, or public/private enterprises or partnerships, and diversify the local economy.
The Growth Fund JDA takes final action on recommendations provided by the Growth Fund Committee, a subcommittee to the JDA.
