New Lehigh Valley Office for Governor's Action Team

The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development announced last week the opening of a new office for the Governor's Action Team (GAT) in the Lehigh Valley.  The office will serve Berks, Lehigh, Monroe and Northampton counties.  A map of all of the GAT regions and a list of the regional directors can be found here

In a recent article,  Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary C. Alan Walker was quoted as saying the following with regard to the new office:

  • "This new office will give us the ability to respond more effectively to the job-creating opportunities presented by an increased level of business expansion and attraction activity in the region" 
  •  "We look forward to working with our local economic development partners and elected officials in the region to continue bringing economic investment and new jobs to Pennsylvania."

The Governor's Action Team is a group of economic development professionals who work with businesses that are looking to expand, locate or relocate in Pennsylvania, with a special emphasis on job creation in Pennsylvania. 

Team PA Foundation's website provides one example of how Team PA Foundation and GAT assisted a Spanish wind energy company that was looking to expand its operations in the United States and expressed an interest in coming to Pennsylvania.


Are you looking to expand or locate your business in Pennsylvania?  GAT may be able to provide you with assistance in site selection as well as provide forms of funding opportunities related to job creation.
