Highlands Economic Partnership

The Highlands Economic Partnership serves Putnam, Jackson, Overton and White counties. Four Counties. One Goal. Prosperity. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for all citizens of Putnam, White, Jackson, and Overton counties by providing opportunities for businesses to grow and prosper. We do this through four major initiatives:

  • Raising the median household income
  • Filling open jobs
  • Bolstering a workforce pipeline
  • Strategically recruiting businesses that would meet an underserved industry need in our region.

We accomplish these four initiatives through eight impact programs:

  • Highlands Training Center
  • Financial Literacy Workshops
  • K-12 Career Exploration
  • Legislative Advocacy
  • Industry Roundtables
  • Targeted Career Fairs
  • Business Retention and Expansion
  • Highlands Leaders/YP Highlands
