Sussex County, Delaware, is a great place to do business. Located within eight hours of a
third of the eastern U.S. population, Sussex County offers an attractive tax structure, real
estate opportunity, a temperate climate and a superior quality of life. Since 1990, the county’s population has surged 73 percent as individuals and businesses recognized the area’s economic and lifestyle potential.

The Sussex Economic Development Action Committee (SEDAC) is committed to retaining,
expanding and attracting business to the place we call home. We do this by combining the
perspectives and resources of business, government and education. We have forged this
unique partnership because we believe that self-sustaining, long-term economic growth
depends upon fusing the power of these distinct communities.SEDAC logo

Our goals are to:

  • Support existing businesses
  • Foster entrepreneurship
  • Facilitate improvements to infrastructure
  • Nurture a well-trained workforce

We seek to connect businesses and entrepreneurs with the many different resources that
are available to finance, coach and partner with them. Welcome to Sussex County!
