Every day since our founding in 1994, and relaunch in 2016, the Hudson County Economic Development Corporation team and board of directors have worked alongside County administration and municipal partners to open doors to opportunity for our vibrant and diverse community of residents, businesses, and organizations. Our collaborative approach to addressing some of our County’s greatest challenges by leveraging our community’s strengths with innovative programming, professional training, and timely access to capital has helped our local economy remain resilient and thriving.

Through HCEDC’s powerful partnerships, our ongoing commitment to serving and supporting diverse, underserved communities throughout our 12 municipalities continues to shape Hudson County in meaningful and lasting ways.

Hudson County, one of New Jersey’s fastest-growing, most densely populated, and diverse regions, offers a wealth of assets and is proud to be an important driver of the state’s economy. Our strategic location, accessible transportation options, highly educated workforce, and culturally rich communities together provide an outstanding quality of life for residents and businesses. As Hudson County continues to evolve, HCEDC and partners anticipate the need and implement proactive strategies to support business attraction and retention.
