Sometimes you need to access outside help to further expand and develop your business.


Fay-Penn Economic Development Council connects you to agencies and organizations that provide that assistance.

Consulting and educational programs are available to small businesses in Fayette County looking to receive guidance on how to grow their business. Your business may need to conduct “deep dives” into specific subject matters to identify efficient action plans. In these instances, we provide reliable organizations (located throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania) that have the knowledge in technical and innovative areas. Some of these services are even “free-of-charge” so there’s no risk to you.
