This new program was inspired by popular demand from participants at our Annual Elected Officials Economic Development 101 Boot Camp. On February 22nd thirty-five participants representing 18 Will County units of government attended and received a comprehensive look at incentives and programs available through our economic development partners who provided critical information necessary to driving projects forward in Will County.

Partners presenting included ComEd, Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO), Office of Minority Economic Empowerment, Joliet City Center Partnership, Illinois Enterprise Zone Association and our morning’s sponsor, CED Sustaining Investor, NICOR Gas.
