Welcome to the Hunterdon County Economic Development E-Newsletter
A Note from the Economic Development Director

Hunterdon County is uniquely positioned for long term prosperity by virtue of its proximity to major markets, the quality and skill of its workforce, the strength of its diverse business base, and the natural beauty of its environment. The County Freeholders have firmly committed to work with county partners to create and sustain programs and relationships that will keep Hunterdon vibrant for generations to come…and this economic development effort is one of their main tools to do just that.

Whether it’s partnering with the private sector to grow the economy, with our communities to lend tools to enable them to continue to flourish, or with our schools to develop career pathways for our students…and so much more…the Economic Development Division will always seek to continue to raise expectations for what all of our citizens can expect out of the quality of life in Hunterdon County! Please contact us at any time, for any reason and give us a chance to help grow your opportunity here!
