In the State of Texas, EDCs are given authority to use a set amount of local sales tax revenue to fund local facilities and amenities as well as certain business enterprises. The Hutto EDC can fund the creation or retention of primary jobs for projects such as manufacturing and industrial facilities, primary job training, public transportation facilities, certain infrastructure facilities, and research and development, as well as parks, events, museums, tourist facilities, and sports facilities—all following certain legislative restrictions. 

Hutto, Texas is a growing community in the Texas Hill Country that is consistently ranked as one of the fastest-growing locations in Texas. As of February 2022, nearly 40,000 people now call this up-and-coming city home.  

Through our mission of advancing growth and opportunity, the Hutto EDC has made Hutto not only a home but a destination. Hutto has numerous advantages for developers and prospects, including being a transportation hub, supporting a thriving community, and having an extensive amount of available land for development. The EDC aims to provide a big-city experience with a small-town quality of life, which means accepting the right projects that will allow our current business to grow and thrive in Hutto—as well as provide newcomers a chance to make a big mark.
