Economic Development

Through our various economic development programs, the Chamber fosters the creation and expansion of small businesses, aggressively markets the region to large businesses, and leads industrial development construction projects. Economic development activities are implemented by The Scranton Plan, the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce’s marketing affiliate.


The Scranton Plan’s mission is to create and retain jobs for Lackawanna County by serving as the community’s partner and assisting with all relocation and expansion needs. With the help of two Chamber affiliates, the Scranton Lackawanna Industrial Building Company (SLIBCO), and the Lackawanna Industrial Fund Enterprises (LIFE), The Scranton Plan is the driving force behind job creation and retention in Lackawanna County. Supporting relocating and expanding businesses, The Scranton Plan serves as a community development partner throughout the entire site selection process.
