Economic Development & Marketing
We have a number of data tools that can help our member municipalities put together compelling cases for interested developers, site finders, grant makers and businesses.
Our staff provide grant writing assistance for our member municipalities as they tell the region’s story through grant proposals to funders at federal and state governments.
In order to support business retention, expansion, and attraction, seCTer connects developers and businesses with available sites in our region. We also provide and analyze data regarding the site being considered, including demographics, traffic, business potential and employment information. seCTer also develops the partnerships with applicable municipal, state and lending resources needed to further support decision making. For our municipal partners, secTer lists their available sites for free on CERC SiteFinder®, Connecticut’s most comprehensive online database of available commercial properties specific to the southeastern CT EDD.
