Strafford County, New Hampshire

Our Prime Focus

Strafford Economic Development Corporation of New Hampshire (SEDC) is an independent non-profit organization which provides and / or locates financial assistance for businesses in, or moving into, Strafford County, New Hampshire. Our mission is to focus on projects and businesses that create new jobs or retain existing jobs, the majority of which are available to lower and middle income employees.

Our Results

We have loaned or placed over $30,000,000 which has leveraged another $100,000,000. This investment has supported the creation or retention of approximately 4000 jobs directly and an equal number of additional jobs indirectly.

Our Approach

A potential client seeking financial assistance is required to fill out only one application for an entire project financing package. As the main contact, SEDC assists in distributing that application to appropriate banks and agencies with a proposed finance structure. This saves the client and financiers' time and duplication of effort while focusing on securing the best results available.
