Economic Development

Creating a healthy and diverse economic base in the Grants Pass area relies on dedicated partners striving to make this region an ideal place to live and do business.

It's the best of all worlds! Grants Pass is a growing community that still maintains its small-town atmosphere as a core value.

With a growing population and workforce, and superb proximity to key West Coast and Asian markets, Grants Pass offers an excellent choice for a variety of business types. Grants Pass is progressive growth with small-town values.

Grants Pass makes economic development a high priority. With core goals of diversifying the economy, improving the standard of living for its residents, and focusing on smaller, local businesses, the city's economic development program uses key tools, programs, and partnerships to achieve success.
