The Economic Development Corporation of Lenawee County (EDCLC) was established under Act No. 338 of the Michigan Public Acts of 1974, as amended, the Economic Development Corporations Act, in order to stimulate business capital investment, contribute to the areas employment, increase local tax base, and provide needed public services.

The main purpose of the EDCLC is to issue tax-exempt "Private Activity Bonds."  The tax-exempt status of the bonds results in extremely low interest rates.  Manufacturing businesses as well as not-for-profit organizations are eligible for this loan program.  Loan amounts for manufacturers range from $1 million to $10 million.  There is no limit for not-for-profits.  Terms vary and can range up to 30 years.

Since 2009 the EDCLC has issued approximately $20 million of PAB's for area projects.
