The Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission provides a variety of services to new and existing businesses.

The EDC has a 12-member board of appointed directors plus six ex-officio members from the community.

Its charge is to market Washington County as a business destination and to enhance the employment base by supporting job training opportunities and industry diversification.

Companies that are considering locating or expanding in Washington County may receive assistance from the EDC in areas such as site selection, financing and employee training.


The EDC publishes free information, including a business and industry directory that identifies more than 450 firms in Washington County, an economic data summary that details important demographic data and an up-to-date inventory of available commercial/industrial buildings and sites.
