About Us


Our Mission

To facilitate retention and creation of jobs and increase prosperity in the Erie region while building the economic development infrastructure through the acquisition, development and redevelopment of real estate in Erie County and through grant and lending opportunities to businesses and municipalities.

Our History

Branching forward from its industrial-roots foundation, Erie has firmly positioned itself to support the businesses of tomorrow, including technology, advanced manufacturing, and logistics and distribution. Throughout the Erie region’s renaissance, the Erie County Redevelopment Authority (ECRDA) has played a pivotal role in local business development. Hundreds of businesses have benefitted from ECRDA’s loan fund, grant programs and expert technical assistance. Today, ECRDA is building on its successful property development history by addressing the needs of the new economy while strengthening its foundation.

This is an exciting time to participate in Erie’s growth, and as need increases, so does our portfolio of services. We know that to remain competitive in this world, you must grow and adapt with the times. We don’t expect you to do this alone. Contact us and we’ll take the next step together.
