What Kind of Support Can You Expect from NIDA? Here is a Summary:

  • We promote the Freeport area, Stephenson County and Northwest Illinois as a preferred choice in which to do business. In sync with our community partners, we work collaboratively on the retention and creation of jobs in the primary sector, in addition to the service, retail and tourism markets.
  • We work with the community's business, governmental, academic, and civic leaders to build a strong economy by leveraging our local talents and resources to develop successful enterprises and maintain jobs that pay people well.
  • We continuously work with existing primary employers to mitigate local barriers to profitability. Learn more about our Prospering Together Home Field Advantage program.
  • We can coordinate a prospect’s site visits.
  • We can perform a customized site search. If the right site or facility is not readily available to meet your needs, NIDA can perform a confidential search to locate a site or building that meets your location requirements. NIDA can make a proposal and secure an option in its name, then transfer the property to you when the time is right.
  • We can explain local, regional and state incentive programs to new and expanding business owners, make introductions to Program Managers and help coordinate the available funding sources to impact a business’ retention, expansion and/or location decision.
  • We can coordinate introductions to City and County personnel and walk you through the regulatory and permit approval processes.
  • We can provide economic, demographic and labor information.
  • We can be a gateway to small business assistance for small business expansions and start-ups.
  • If we can't help you, we will refer you.

We invite you to learn more about our role, critical success factors and guiding strategies.
