Monongalia County Development Authority
The Monongalia County Development Authority (MCDA) is an arm of county government whose purpose is to “promote, develop and advance the business prosperity and economic welfare of Monongalia County.” The Monongalia County Commission makes those appointments to the board of directors that are not already set forth by State enabling legislation.
MAP and the MCDA work together to help new and existing businesses in such areas as capital financing, tax incentives, employee recruitment and training, sites and buildings, international trade, and community and economic data. Holly Childs, CEcD, directs both organizations. A copy of the current “Mission, Goals, and Work Program” for both MAP and the MCDA is available by going to Work Program.
