About the Middle Rio Grande Economic Development Association


MRGEDA's goal is to enhance the quality of life in the Middle Rio Grande Valley, while reinforcing the unique characteristics of our counties and our communities. We hope to accomplish this by assisting in the building of quality jobs that will generate disposable income and tax revenues. It is the direction of growth and sustainable economic development, through infrastructure, education, and jobs, that will help both present and future generations prosper in our area.

Working in close partnership with local, state, and regional governments, as well as local businesses, realtors, developers, large landowners, and financial institutions to facilitate sustainable economic development, MRGEDA assists in the retention and expansion of businesses in the Middle Rio Grande Valley while at the same time working to create and attract new businesses within our region. Our intention on both fronts is to bring new jobs to the valley, resulting in a positive economic impact.

MRGEDA will also provide support to new and expanding businesses by introducing them to State and other incentive programs such as tax initiatives, training programs, and much more.
