Sonora Economic Development Corporation
307 East Oak Street
Sonora, TX 76950
Sonora Economic Development Corporation (SEDC), was initially founded as Sonora Industrial
Development Corporation in 1980 and tasked with promoting and developing commercial, industrial and manufacturing enterprises to increase employment and support the improvement of the community.
In 1998, the City adopted the Type 4B one-half cent sales tax and authorized SEDC to use these funds to further
the economic development of the community and infrastructure as specified by State law.
Several years ago, a tourism development firm collected extensive data through public workshops, providing us with a modern initiative for moving our community forward economically.
SEDC has also partnered with other local entities to finance a Tourism Advertising Campaign under the
leadership of the Chamber of Commerce.
Through its grants, SEDC continually seeks to enhance business growth by encouraging new business as well as by expanding existing businesses. We encourage you to explore the ways SEDC can assist you in developing new opportunities.
