Economic and Community Betterment covers the broadest possible spectrum of a community and its current situation. All elements of a community come together to determine the success of that community for its businesses and residents. Each community and the surrounding region are unique and the situation is complex.
Changing a region's economic capacity requires building on strengths and addressing weaknesses. It requires consistent and sustained investment in the community's infrastructure, assets and labor pool to prepare for success.
Funding Solutions has a well-proven process for helping cities, counties, chambers and economic development organizations set economic development goals and generate the strategies necessary to achieve them. We work with business leaders, educators, not-for-profit and cultural organizations, and other key groups to create the funding to support the marketable quality of life every community needs to be competitive for jobs and labor attraction.
Economic Development is usually defined as the creation and recruitment of income-producing corporate entities and the consequent jobs and revenue associated with the growth of the local economy. Existing, incubated and recruited corporate entities sell only two things: products and services.
Community Betterment generally deals with quality of life and social fabric issues and encompasses the critical elements of land, housing, healthcare, transportation, information services, cultural and environmental quality and the integral element of education to supply employers with a skilled, sustainable workforce.
The two cannot be separated and are dependent upon one another.
