Since the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation was formed more than six years ago, it has helped bring thousands of new jobs to the Santa Clarita Valley. We help recruit companies to the SCV, especially companies seeking a more business friendly environment who are at risk of moving out of state. We also help local companies solve problems and access incentives like workforce training programs and tax credits.

With new industrial construction underway, we have the opportunity to locate even more jobs here in the next several years.
