Erie County Industrial Development Agency (ECIDA)

Erie County Industrial Development Agency (ECIDA) We help businesses grow in Erie County. The Erie County Industrial Development Agency (ECIDA) is not a government agency. We are not part of the Erie County government body; we are a public benefit corporation created in 1970 by act of the New York State Legislature to assist private sector industrial, business and community development, creating job opportunities and economic well-being for the people of Erie County.
