What We Do

The Bucks County Industrial Development Authority (BCIDA) is Bucks County’s lead economic development agency and is directed by the Bucks County Board of Commissioners. We administer the economic development initiatives of the County Commissioners and work in partnership with many for- and not-for-profit organizations to support local businesses, enterprises, and entrepreneurs to locate, grow, and expand their businesses through a wide range of support services.

A critical component of our mission is to provide qualified businesses with below market rate financing to grow and expand their operations and to create and retain family sustaining jobs. This includes, but is not limited to, land and building acquisition, site preparation and improvements, machinery and equipment purchases, working capital loans and financing for certain "soft costs" associated with larger scale development projects. The BCIDA also serves as a clearing house and One-Stop-Shop in linking businesses with other financial and technical resources available throughout Bucks County and the State.
