The Chautauqua County Department of Planning & Development works collaboratively with the CCIDA, an economic development organization authorized and empowered by the State of New York, to make Chautauqua County a better place to work, live, and visit. The CCIDA facilitates development by attracting new businesses, while promoting the retention and expansion of existing businesses. Assistance in the form of incentives – tax abatements, low interest loans, and bond financing – enhances the opportunities for job creation and retention by our businesses.
