SIED Board

 Supporting Investments in Economic Development (SIED) Board  

Yakima County's Supporting Investment in Economic Development (SIED) program is the result of 1997 state legislation to help remedy distress in rural areas. SIED awards grants and loans to finance public infrastructure such as access roads, rail lines, sewer and water extensions, or other public works to support private investment and job creation.

The SIED Board is responsible for reviewing applications and making funding recommendations to the Board of Yakima County Commissioners. More information on the program can be found at: https://chooseyakimavalley.com/doing-business/public-infrastructure-funding-program-sied/
