Focused on economic growth.
The Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation (SCVEDC) works to provide an integrated approach to attracting, retaining and expanding a diversity of business and industry in the Santa Clarita Valley. To accomplish this mission, the SCVEDC utilizes the following programs:
The BEAR Program is designed to address the needs of existing businesses throughout the Santa Clarita Valley. With the help of our BEAR partners, each year SCVEDC will provide no-cost, confidential one-on-one business assistance visits with primary industry employers. Information gathered through the BEAR program will be used to locate potential business expansion opportunities, identify at-risk companies and develop appropriate assistance solutions. Information will also be analyzed on an aggregate basis to allow the SCVEDC to share with area decision-makers ways that they can continue improve the regional business climate.
