About Us

Since its establishment in 1974, the Whitehall Township Industrial & Commercial Development Authority (WTICDA), located in Whitehall, Pa. is a professional, community-based resource that assists in accessing funding to support job growth, employment and development. WTICDA has cultivated its diverse knowledge and experience in order to provide the best assistance for incoming and growing businesses in the industrial, commercial and technology fields, while making an investment in the community in which we live and work. And, while WTICDA's roots are in Whitehall Township, we can extend our helping hand to communities outside of the Lehigh Valley, anywhere in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Contact us about progressing your industrial, commercial or technology organization, because we are the resource to start and grow your business.

Located in the Heart of the Lehigh Valley,

Whitehall is "At the Center of it All!"
