Responsibilities

SIED funding is the result of 1997 state legislation to help remedy distress in rural areas.  Since 1999 Yakima County's SIED program has invested over $49 million in local infrastructure projects (road, water, sewer) throughout Yakima County.  Companies supported by SIED have invested over $200 million in new facilities and created over 1600 new jobs.
