Business Retention and Expansion: We assist existing businesses with retention and expansion issues that keep employers profitable by keeping up with changing needs. This assistance includes a variety of areas such as permit assistance, government relations, human resources, business policies, marketing, site selection and business planning.

New Business Assistance: We assist new businesses through business plan development; finance packaging; demographic and product research; licensing and permitting assistance; training courses; small business counseling; library of business references; demographic research; labor force training information; and business referrals.

Research Data: We keep important statistics and economic development indicators on hand that could save your company hours of research. We also utilize the research business counseling services of the Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) and Western Washington University’s College of Business and Economics’ Center for Economic Vitality, which provides reports including feasibility studies, market research and analysis as well as customized demographic reports. As the Associate Development Organization (ADO) for Kittitas County, we are able to access this otherwise costly research at no charge.

Government Relations: Staff and board members monitor key local and state issues and communicate effectively with our elected officials. We advocate for economic development opportunities in Kittitas County and we foster relationships with state and federal agencies such as The Washington State Department of Commerce; The U.S. Department of Commerce; and Central Washington University.

In addition to the above services, we also coordinate with local real estate agencies and keep a compiled database of light industrial/commercial properties within Kittitas County to assist in finding a suitable location and site for your company.
