Organizational Structure

Langlade County Economic Development Corporation is a non-profit 501 c (3) corporation created to address the economic and community development needs of Langlade County. Currently, funding is made possible through the proactive efforts of the Antigo City Council and Langlade County Board along with administration fees earned through the Economic Development Revolving Loan fund (EDRLF), as well as administration of State and Federal Grants. Governance for the corporation is quite unique as it is a partnership between Langlade County, The City of Antigo and members of the private sector representing our diverse business climate.
