The purpose of the Business, Retention and Expansion (BRE) program is to:
- Retain and expand local business in key industry clusters;
- Encourage job growth in the local corporate base; and
- Provide technical assistance to local companies.
Under leadership of the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation, the BRE program demonstrates a coordinated and concerted effort among the community’s economic development partners (City of San Antonio, Bexar County, CPS Energy, Workforce Solutions Alamo, the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce and others) to keep our valued employers engaged and successfully operating in San Antonio.
In FY 2019, the BRE program:
- Visited 77 companies.
- BRE companies visited created 2,251 new jobs, representing 49% of new jobs created through the efforts.
