Supporting Local Economic Growth

Maricopa enjoys many assets and resources that need to be mobilized and synchronized to assure an even brighter future and more compelling reasons to do business in our City. We believe that the platform of a public/private partnership designed to leverage private and public investment is the strongest method to achieve our goal of supporting economic growth in Maricopa.

Who is MEDA?

We are a private, non-profit organization approved by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) for economic development. As such we partner and support the economic development efforts of the City of Maricopa. Examples of past MEDA activities and successes include:

> Producing the Economic Development Strategic Plan for the City, which is used as the roadmap for economic activities, responsibilities, and target opportunities for the next three to five years

> Assisting the City with vetting of potential prospects considering Maricopa as a place to do business

> Responding to the request of potential companies relating to private infrastructure needs including , water, sewer, power and telecommunications

> Providing a depth of business experience on our board and bringing this business acumen to the table in interactions and negotiations with potential companies moving to Maricopa

> Creation of programs aimed at advancing local business expansion, such as the Management Technical Assistance Program which provides funding and expertise to local businesses in growth mode

Please consider an annual contribution to MEDA as a Founding Sponsor or one of the other levels of support.
