LATEST NEWS

Beginning in early 2019, the Oceana County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) will begin the process of dissolution, leading to a new era of economic development in Oceana County with a new agency. The EDC will be replaced with a newly established nonprofit organization called the Oceana County Economic Alliance (OCEA).  The OCEA is in the final stages of establishing itself as a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization, allowing financial support from the community to be used as a possible personal or business tax deduction (please consult your tax advisor directly).

The OCEA is partnering with The Right Place (Grand Rapids) to provide economic development services to Oceana County. The Right Place has several decades of experience working in West Michigan with a network of partner agencies to provide results-based economic development.  To learn more about The Right Place, please visit the agency’s website at https://www.rightplace.org/.  You can find a link to the OCEA on the website as well by using this link: https://www.rightplace.org/for-local-business/oceana-county.

Just like our predecessor organization (the EDC), OCEA needs local community and business support to meet our overall strategic goal(s) of business retention, expansion, and recruitment. Please contact one of the following individuals to learn more about the opportunity to support OCEA.
