Learn how POLICOM can help your
grow and expand!

For more than twenty years, POLICOM has assisted and advised communities on how to improve their local economies.

POLICOM analyzes local and state economies, determines if they are growing or declining, identifies what is causing this to happen, and offers ideas and solutions to improve the situation.

From its research and educational programs, community and government leaders discover what is driving their economy and what the community will have to do to enhance the "economic quality of life" for the people living and working in the area.

POLICOM has created a study which provides guidance on how to create a community economic development incentive program. To download the study, click here.
