Since 2020, the cities of Dawson and Madison host the Economic Development function within Lac qui Parle County.
Lac qui Parle County provides supportive funding to both the cities of Dawson and Madison who provide Economic Development services countywide through their local EDA boards, with an annual contract with Community and Business Development Associates (CEDA) for 1-day per week service. The city boards also provide economic development services through other contracts and grant programs including with the Upper Minnesota Valley Regional Development Commission.
For any questions on Economic Development or how local EDA's can assist your business, please direct your questions to your closest EDA:
