Funding Partners and Board Leadership

Ensuring Rowan County’s Future Success

Funding Partners

The Rowan Economic Development Commission (Rowan EDC)  receives a majority of its funding from its government partners Rowan County, the cities of Salisbury and Kannapolis and the towns of China Grove, Cleveland, East Spencer, Faith, Granite Quarry, Landis, Rockwell, and Spence.

In 2020, the Rowan EDC launched its economic development plan, Forward Rowan, and established a public-private partnership using its affiliated nonprofit, Rowan Growth Partners.
