SERVICES WE PROVIDE
HCDC maintain the state database of available buildings and sites in Huron County.
Properties must be listed on this database to be eligible for response to state-generated economic development leads. We work with our local economic development and community partners to be sure that the database is populated with accurate information on all available sites in the county.
HCDC receives and distributes state-generated economic development leads to our local economic development partners and communities. HCDC is the only agency in the county that can respond to these leads on behalf of our communities. We provide assistance with preparation of RFIs (Requests for Information) that may be required with the proposed site response.
