An independent study by Insight Research has concluded that the the work of the Allen Economic Development Corporation (EDC) has resulted in the creation of over 18,000 Allen jobs and $46 billion being added to the local and regional economy since its creation in 1992.
Insight Research conducts this analysis each year to measure Allen EDC’s impact on Allen’s growth and economy.
"Twenty-nine years ago, voters tasked the Allen EDC with bringing high quality jobs and increasing the commercial tax base in order to lower the tax burden on Allen citizens,” said Daniel Bowman, Allen EDC CEO and Executive Director. “We are proud to be accomplishing that objective by supporting projects that enhance the economy and investing in amenities that many of our residents enjoy.”
Each year, Allen EDC also recognizes Allen-based companies who have made significant economic contributions to the Allen community. The 2022 winning companies have heavily invested in Allen and will bring approximately 600 new jobs to our city.
