The Renville County Job Development Authority (RCJDA) was created to address issues critical to economic development and diversification within Renville County.
The primary purpose of the authority is to create new jobs, preserve existing jobs, broaden the local tax base, increase capital investment, and expand the primary sector and financial base of the region. It provides financial incentives through interest-free loans and grants to businesses that want to start, expand, or relocate to Renville County.
RCJDA has helped with many startups and expansions over the years. The county has grown from the participation and dedication of local people who choose to reinvest and volunteer their skills and talents. By encouraging a supportive business environment, this in turn strengthens not only the entire community, but the entire province.
RCJDA understands that community development is not just growth and our existing small business is the heart of the healthy city. RJCDA will strive to continue to see local businesses succeed, prosper and prosper.
