SVEDC Membership drive!

The Silver Valley Economic Development board of directors would like to invite you to join Silver Valley’s economic development partnership.   Our goal is to improve the economic quality of life and standard of living for the people of the Silver valley.  Our major focus is to create living wage job opportunities by helping our local primary industry employers grow.  A gain in living wage jobs means people have more money to spend locally.   Your investment will help support an economic development program dedicated to the economic quality of life and standard of living for the people of the Silver alley.   SVEDC has the current priorities:

  • Improving access to broadband bandwidth to support education, business and personal needs
  • Development of a long term strategic plan to grow local businesses and education opportunities
  • Partner with Idaho Departments of Commerce and Labor to assist business start-ups, business expansion, and company re-location
  • Create an employee pipeline to attract and retain talent
  • Work with municipalities when grant/funding opportunities or projects become available  
It is vital that we maintain an economically viable organization that can sustain this effort, and for this we need your financial support. The SVEDC board believes that we can and will have increased prosperity.   We are an organization dedicated to helping our Valley’s economy grow into the future.  Your investment will be used in meeting operating expenses that arise out of our endeavors to build jobs in the Silver Valley 

Silver Valley Economic Development Corporation is funded partially through an Idaho Commerce grant which requires matching support from the community.
