The Colorado Economic Development Commission (EDC) was created by the Colorado General Assembly to promote economic development in Colorado. It consists of 11 members, with three members appointed by the Senate, three appointed by the House, and five appointed by the Governor.
The EDC Members are tasked with reviewing the economic condition of Colorado, developing and implementing programs for the promotion of economic development in Colorado, and ensuring that such economic development programs create employment opportunities for Colorado residents and benefit Colorado companies across the state. The EDC approves incentives from the economic development funds to public and private entities throughout the state to help existing businesses expand and new companies locate to Colorado.
All policy and funding decisions are made by commission members. The commission is also responsible for policy decisions concerning the state Enterprise Zone program.
