What The Alliance Does

The Economic Development Alliance for Brazoria County is a county-wide, membership-based economic development organization created as a resource and advocate for the development and diversification of the economic foundation of Brazoria County.

"Promote and diversify the economic base, attract high-wage jobs in target industries to Brazoria County, and support and champion the interests of existing businesses."
– The Alliance's Mission Statement

In addition to its mission, The Alliance actively assists and promotes the needs for skilled labor, transportation improvements, more single-family housing, and the continued flow of water down the Brazos River through the Lower Brazos River Coalition, created in 2015.
