VALUE Program

Created in 2016, the VALUE Program serves as the Clinton Region’s Business Retention & Expansion strategy in the support and promotion of our existing businesses. The Clinton Regional Development Corporation connects businesses with resources designed to help grow their operations, increase sales, identify new markets, and engage the community.


A robust visitation plan acts as the cornerstone of our Business Retention & Expansion program.

  • Identify expansion opportunities
  • Understand local business viewpoints on the economy
  • Identify your business concerns related to economic development
  • Provide your business with information about current state/local development programs
  • Establish or maintain a channel of communications between your business and local leaders
  • Identify workforce demands and opportunities for increased training/specialty instruction

If you need assistance in workforce development, financing, international sales, government regulations, waste management, etc., please contact us today. Our goal is for your business to succeed and grow in the Clinton Region.
