About Us

The Greene County Economic Development Group, Inc. was established from the Greene County Economic Development Committee, which became inactive in 1995. The Group was re-formed in 2005 after a Health MAPPING Program (Management and Planning Program Involving Non-metropolitan Groups) sponsored by Thomas H. Boyd Memorial Hospital. Several concerned citizens felt that to bring positive change and growth to Greene County's health care facilities and schools economic development was the answer. Volunteers from the business community, farming community, and county officials guided by a specialist in community affairs from the Illinois Coalition for Community Service came together to take on the task of bringing business and jobs to Greene County. Through their initial efforts the group has had positive input from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, the Illinois Rural Electric Cooperative, the Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs, and the Illinois Entrepreneurial Network. GCEDG has created affiliations with and supports Corridor 67 Inc. University of Illinois Extension Greene County and Illinois Valley Cultural Heritage Association.
