The LAEDC was created by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to implement LA County’s economic development program through land development, project financing and marketing activities. During its history, the LAEDC has evolved from being a facilitator of the County’s industrial bond development program to being Southern California’s premier economic development organization.
Just as the region’s economy has grown, so have the breadth and impact of the LAEDC’s programs and services. Today the LAEDC’s Business Assistance Program has helped create or retain nearly 171,300 jobs, with a direct economic impact of $8.4 billion and $144 million in annual tax revenue benefit to Los Angeles County.
