About the Northwest Illinois Development Alliance

NIDA is a not-for-profit economic development corporation focused on retaining and expanding business, and diversifying the economic base of the City of Freeport, Stephenson County and northwest Illinois.

Cost Efficient and Effective

NIDA's public/private structure maximizes the effectiveness of regional economic development efforts while minimizing the cost. By utilizing NIDA's small but effective staff, local governments avoid the added cost of hiring their own staffs and duplicating efforts.

Under the leadership of its executive director, NIDA facilitates the kind of inter-governmental and private sector collaboration needed to maximize economic development results. This approach also provides developers as well as prospective and existing businesses a one-stop shop for information and assistance

We invite you to learn about our Mission, Products and Services, Board and Staff, Target Industries, Business Retention and Expansion and Small Business Assistance programs.
