Three Hundred and Thirty-Four Jobs for Bucks County
Bucks County Economic Development Corporation (BCEDC), is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s certified economic development organization(CEDO) for Bucks County. In 2017, BCEDC helped Bucks County manufacturers and distributors acquire more than $9 million from PIDA’s low-interest loan program. That’s the largest amount distributed to Bucks County since the $13 million approved for county companies in 2014.
BCEDC attributes the increase to Bucks County’s strong economy as well as the low interest rate of 2%, down from the previous rate of 4%. Companies couldn’t pass up the money.
