Regional Specialist Support

Regional Development Specialists are available for individual and small group meetings to offer solutions to challenges and tools and resources to help Oklahoma communities thrive. 

Local Support

Regional Collaboration

Regional Team members play key roles in the economic development of their regions, collaborating with government officials, local economic development organizations, tribes and educational institutions. Together we can help Oklahoma communities attract new jobs and grow their workforce.

Community Assets

Available buildings and sites are valuable assets when it comes to competing for relocation or expansion projects. When Commerce knows what is available in your community, we can better connect you with the right growth opportunities and potential economic development projects.

Programs for Progress

The Regional Team provides information on available community programs such as the Oklahoma Main Street Program, Community Block Development Grants (CDBG) and CDBG-EDIF (Economic Development Infrastructure Financing).

Take Your Community to the World

Each year, Commerce leads delegations of Oklahoma communities and businesses to trade shows. As a member of the delegation, communities can showcase their assets, workforce and industries and connect with companies that might move or expand to Oklahoma.
