Gov. Tom Corbett, the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development (DCED) and Team PA Foundation designed the Governor’s ImPAct Awards to celebrate the companies and individuals who are investing in Pennsylvania and creating jobs.
Launched in 2013, this awards program equally represents the 10 Pennsylvania PREP (Partnerships for Regional Economic Performance) regions. PREP is a statewide network of partners designed to work in concert to deliver vital economic development services across the state. PREP region coordinators could nominate up to five companies in each of
the five following categories: Community ImPAct, Entrepreneur ImPAct, Export ImPAct, Jobs First ImPAct and Small Business ImPAct. Nominated companies were required to be based or have significant operations in their respective PREP regions, be for-profit entities and be in good standing with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.
