About the Butte Local Development Corporation
As the primary economic development organization for Butte Silver Bow, the BLDC uses a multi-pronged approach to advancing the Butte economy based around the recruitment of regional or out-of-state businesses to expand their operations to Butte, growth of existing companies, and partnerships with entrepreneurs and companies of all sizes to promote job creation in our community.
The BLDC’s goals are focused on growing entrepreneurship and employment opportunities, increasing population and tax base, and assisting our existing businesses to grow and compete in a global economy. We do this by providing high-quality services and programs designed to make relocation, expansion, or start-up as smooth as possible. The BLDC has an impressive portfolio of loan programs that, when coupled with business development assistance services, create a winning combination for the business we support. The BLDC works closely with Butte’s and Montana’s other economic development organizations to package services specifically to meet your business needs.
The Butte Local Development Corporation, working with our members and partners, have helped create or retain 4,423 jobs!
