Sugar Land’s Economic Development Community
Sugar Land EDC was established in 1999 to ensure the City of Sugar Land is a great place to live and work. We’re the first port of call for businesses looking for Sugar Land Texas information. This fast-growing city offers a high quality of life and an abundance of business opportunities. We continue to improve and promote Sugar Land’s exceptional location, diverse talent and solid infrastructure to maintain a vibrant local economy.
From start-ups to global corporations, we attract new businesses of all sizes to the area and support them once they’re here. We assist companies throughout the entire business development process, helping to identify local, state, regional and federal incentives. Entrepreneurs and company representatives rely on our insight and connections to help with Sugar Land site selection, custom research, data, relocation and expansion. Our support continues long after the relocation or expansion project takes place. We identify training opportunities to keep the local workforce’s skills a cut above industry standards.
Sugar Land’s economic development community comprises two non-profit corporation boards. The Sugar Land Development Corporation Board (a “Type A” economic development corporation) oversees the city’s economic development policy, including project selection and funding. Sugar Land 4B Corporation (a “Type B” corporation) focuses on supporting and promoting economic development activities and quality of life opportunities. It manages the allocation of sales tax funds towards private, public and municipal facilities such as parks, museums, stadiums and parking lots. Since their inception, these corporations have generated a combined total sales tax revenue of almost $240,000,000.
Several local, regional and state partners contribute to our success. Our economic development allies include chambers of commerce and education, finance and development government organizations. Working alongside our corporation boards, the Sugar Land Joint CIP Grant Program implements community-based projects that improve public spaces.
Sugar Land EDC can provide community assistance and resources to serve both professional and business needs. We’ve fostered several highly successful public-private collaborations between the City of Sugar Land and trusted partners. You can see the results of these partnerships in Sugar Land’s iconic Town Square and the award-winning Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land.
