Great River Economic Development Foundation (GREDF) has been a driving force in Quincy, and Adams County, Illinois since 1978. GREDF's number one priority is to retain existing businesses and help them grow. GREDF assists prospective businesses, site consultants and entrepreneurs. GREDF also takes the lead in a variety of initiatives that contribute to the outstanding quality of life we enjoy here. And as their name “Great River” implies, they collaborate regionally with our neighbors along the Mississippi River in Western Illinois, Northeast Missouri and Southeast Iowa.
Their services are confidential. Their objective is to address retention issues and expedite the development process. This may include providing a basic demographic report or detailed site information, referring you to a contact in our community, or arranging meetings with appropriate parties at the local, county and state levels to help you achieve your goals.
