Sun Valley Economic Development (SVED), originally formed in 2010 as SustainBlaine, is a 501(c)6 not-for-profit public-private partnership. Sun Valley Economic Development is the only organization focused on county-wide issues and works directly with the Idaho Department of Commerce and other Idaho state agencies.
Sun Valley Economic Development operates under the guidance of a full-time executive director and volunteer Board of Directors. SVED’s Board is a diverse and experienced set of leaders, with representatives from our region’s largest employers, public officials, and other influential community organizations.
Sun Valley Economic Development is funded on an annual basis by a mix of public and private sector monies. Anchored by a multi-year, renewable Idaho Department of Commerce grant, additional funds are contributed by Blaine County, its municipalities, and by more than 30 of the leading businesses in the private sector.
