2015 GREDF Annual Report
GREDF is two years into a three-year strategic plan for economic development. The plan guides our organization’s investment of time and limited financial resources in initiatives, programs and projects. It is a product of feedback and guidance from the business community. And it exists, GREDF exists, to serve that business community.
Our mission at GREDF is to maintain and improve the economic vitality of the Quincy and Adams County, Illinois, region, through the retention and expansion of existing businesses and the attraction of new businesses to our entire region.
To that end, we focus on six domains: Business retention and expansion, workforce development, business attraction, marketing and branding, entrepreneurship development and membership. GREDF must be accountable to our investors and the business community, which is why we are pleased to share this 2015 Annual Performance Report.
