FORT WORTH, TX – Today, the Fort Worth Chamber announced the launch of its Regional Economic Development Partnership, promoting regional growth and economic development across the western side of the DFW metro. The first of its kind collaboration brings together more than 18 municipalities and counties to strengthen community relationships, track business trends and share data and resources. 

The partnership will have a dual focus: supporting existing local businesses through enhanced retention efforts as well as marketing the region as a target destination for relocating companies.

“We’re extremely proud to launch this initiative with nearly 20 organizations committed to date,” said Chris Strayer, Executive Vice President of Economic Development for the FWC. “This collaboration provides invaluable information and resources to our regional partners and we’re so excited to work together to grow and develop our local economy.”

“North Richland Hills is pleased to be a part of this new endeavor with the Fort Worth Chamber,” said Craig Hulse, Director of Economic Development for the City of North Richland Hills. “A rising tide lifts all ships and we look forward to collaborating with neighboring communities to strengthen the economic future of the region.”

The founding partners committed to investing in the organization include the City of Burleson, City of Corinth, City of Granbury, City of Joshua, City of Keller, City of Mansfield, City of Saginaw, City of Southlake, City of Weatherford, Cleburne Economic Development Foundation, Inc., Decatur Economic Development Corporation, Grapevine Economic Development, HEB Economic Development Foundation, North Richland Hills Economic Development, and Parker County Economic Development.

Regional partnership funds are earmarked to grow the region through business attraction, marketing, and project management. To learn more, visit
