Nestled in the fertile Yellowstone River Valley, at the confluence of the Tongue and Yellowstone Rivers, Miles City is the hub for economic activity for most of eastern Montana. Miles City also acts as the center for financial activity and medical services in Southeastern Montana.
About What We Do
& How We Got Here
Steeped in Western History, Miles City remains a true western town. Vast stretches of plains and badlands branch out in all directions. The Yellowstone and Tongue Rivers flow unblemished through the area.
The Miles City Area Economic Development Council (MCAEDC) was formed in 1992 by a group of community leaders for the purpose of providing support and direction for existing business and new business development, support for continued improvement to community infrastructure and in general assist in creating a positive business climate for economic development as well as an appealing place to live, work, play and prosper. The group formed a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization in 1996 and today is a very active organization with a Board of Directors made up of a broad spectrum of community leaders.
We also work closely with Southeastern Montana Development Corporation, the MCAEDC Executive Director is also a Loan
Officer for SEMDC’s Revolving Loan Fund. Together, we provide business planning and funding assistance for businesses that has led to job growth and job retention in the Miles City and Custer County area.
