Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City

Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City (EDC) is a non-profit agency founded in 1987 to support economic development by fostering a connection between communities and businesses. EDC has helped the 125-year historic Kansas City Southern, a transportation holding company, relocate two of its facilities to Kansas City from Louisiana. With a $4 million investment, 129 new jobs were added to the city's job market. Partnering with Habitat for Humanity, EDC plans to create 30 new housing units by 2014 for low-income families in Kansas City's blighted urban core with a $2 million investment. In 2009, EDC reported annual revenue of $4.2 million with a total investment of $140 million, while creating 1,420 jobs.
