The Regional Economic Development Partnership is a coalition of economic development professionals working to support the economic vitality of Northern Colorado. The partnership is comprised of individuals from:

  • regional non-profit economic development organizations and
  • educational institutions.

Started in 2014, the partnership serves as a regional think-tank on economic, workforce and community issues impacting our communities.

Business Retention and Expansion

Business Retention and Expansion (BR&E) is a community-based program that engages communities to:

  • examine the local business situation,
  • interpret the information collected,

Larimer County’s Economic Development initiative is to diversify the economic base and create quality jobs that provide the framework to enhance the continued growth and success of local existing companies.
