California Central Valley Economic Development Corporation (CCVEDC) is a regional marketing group whose mission is to promote job creation in the valley, mountain, and desert communities located within Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Merced, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Tulare. This program supplements the existing efforts of individual agencies throughout the area.

Who we are:

The CCVEDC was formed in the late 1980s by the professional Economic Development organizations serving the counties of California’s Central Valley. Together with their partners like Pacific Gas and Electric, they have cooperated and collaborated to present the Central California as a highly desirable location for expanding companies seeking the advantages of a rapidly growing and resource rich environment.

What we do:

CCVEDC provides businesses with the resources necessary when evaluating, planning and implementing a site location/expansion in the Central California region. CCVEDC facilitates the site selection process by:

  • Connecting with the region’s key decision makers in economic development, financial, government, regulatory and real estate
  • Providing proprietary research/data
  • Conducting site searches and site tours
  • Facilitating planning and consultation meetings

CCVEDC’s assistance and services are always conducted privately and confidentially.
