About

About BDC

Five existing economic development organizations in Brooke and Hancock Counties were consolidated to form a single organization dedicated to creating jobs and encouraging economic investment in the northern panhandle. Chartered as a 501-C3 (private, not for profit) organization, the BDC has established Brooke and Hancock Counties as a Certified Development Community. We continue to expand the economic development capabilities within the two counties. Certification shows the business community that the region is prepared for their expansion or relocation.
