Counties are responsible for providing core services such as human services, criminal justice, public welfare and infrastructure to communities of all sizes across America. The conditions of a county economy can constrain and challenge county governments, residents and businesses, while also providing opportunities. To ensure the delivery of essential services, support job growth and maintain a healthy revenue base, counties invest in community and economic development activities in a number of ways. Counties most typically focus on workforce training, business attraction and retention, and regional marketing in their economic development partnerships.
