A message from the Executive Director

Welcome to our Moshannon Valley Economic Development Partnership web site! Our economic and community development organization is located in the heart of central-Pennsylvania, in the Philipsburg Borough area of Centre County. We are just twenty-two miles away from the Pennsylvania State University located to our east.

Our organization is dedicated to helping the business sector and communities of this region. For almost twenty-five years, we have been a one-stop shop offering a variety of assistance including:

  • Quality building space for lease
  • Ready-to-go business park sites for sale
  • Loan financing
  • Grants writing assistance
  • Business-to-business services

The MVEDP is also a chamber of commerce organization with close to 190 members. Many of our members have belonged to our organization for over twenty years. We have always worked hard to properly serve the businesses of our region by providing the programs and services that they need to grow and prosper. Our dedication to the people of this region has not gone unnoticed as in 1997 we were named by the Pennsylvania Economic Development Association as its Agency of the Year.

So again, welcome to our web site and welcome to the Philipsburg and Moshannon Valley region of central-Pennsylvania!
