WHAT WE DO

Our Plan of Action

The Economic Development Authority of Claxton & Evans County works to increase the economic opportunities within Evans County and our region. We promote the development of our community's economic assets. We work to attract new industry and support existing business to generate new investment and create jobs. We utilize our partnerships on the state and local level to promote Evans County, to support our businesses, and improve the overall quality of life in Evans County. Our four primary focuses of success are as follows:

Business Retention & Expansion

We support our existing industries. It’s estimated that 65 – 70% of new jobs are created by existing businesses. Our mission is to meet with our existing industries each year to learn about their challenges and opportunities. With our state and local partners, we can provide connections, information, services, and solutions to support our local businesses and encourage growth. We can provide assistance with financing, workforce development, infrastructure development, and international business.

Retail Development

Retail recruitment and development is a key component to the EDA's focus. We feel retail is an essential part of our local economy. The choices available impact how our citizens live, work, and play and the tax revenues generated support basic community services. We work to recruit new retail, restaurants, and hotels to the Evans County community by analyzing our community’s needs, identifying available properties, and making strategic business connections.
