Business Retention & Expansion (BRE)

The Stafford Department of Economic Development has an established business retention and development strategy that supports the growth and success of companies throughout the County.  Our goal is to connect existing businesses with the information, resources, and programs to improve the overall business climate.

Stafford can help you establish and grow your business:

  • Provide a single point of contact
  • Facilitate your project's development review and the permit process
  • Advocate within County government and assist companies through the necessary regulatory requirements and approvals
  • Identify "who's who" in local government departments.

For assistance with workforce development, business expansions, exports to foreign markets, development financing or gap funding, schedule an on-site visit.  (540) 658-8681 or email at

GEICO is fortunate to have located its Mid-Atlantic Regional Office in southern Stafford County.  For more than 20 years we have been able to grow our business here with the availability of a great workforce and a cooperative partnership with local government administrators.  We look forward to continued mutual growth and success for many years to come.”
