City of Miamisburg
Miamisburg is a full-service community of approximately 20,000 residents located just south of Dayton in Ohio's Miami Valley. Established in 1818, the city today is distinguished by a deep appreciation for its rich history combined with a progressive vision for the future.
Miamisburg offers a rich variety of housing types, from historic Victorian homes to contemporary styles - all in attractive, welcoming neighborhoods. And the amenities are plentiful: award-winning schools, beautiful parks and natural areas, recreation facilities, two golf courses, convenient shopping and entertainment opportunities are among the features that make this community a great place to live.
Miamisburg is also known for its business-friendly environment - a place where companies of all sizes and types can take root, grow and prosper.
In 1979, County Corp was established as the result of Montgomery County's need to participate more actively in the areas of affordable housing and economic development.
County Corp, the first organization of its kind in any Ohio county, offers numerous loan programs to support business development in Montgomery County.

Montgomery County Department of Community and Economic Development
Over the years, the Montgomery County Department of Community and Economic Development have launched numerous programs that support its mission of improving and maintaining the quality of life and economic health within the county. Here are a few of them:
- County Corp administers a host of affordable housing and economic development programs - including various business loans - using local, state, and federal funding sources.
- Montgomery County's Economic Development/Government Equity (ED/GE) Program provides the framework for an innovative and cooperative approach to economic development. Since its inception in 1992, ED/GE awards have assisted in the creation or retention of more than 30,000 jobs and leveraged more than $1 billion in public and private funds.
- Business First! is a program geared to helping the county’s existing businesses prosper and grow. Through this effort, community representatives work to establish relationships with companies, linking them to any of the 30 regional resource partners that can help the businesses become more competitive.
NCIC Capital Fund
The National Center for Industrial Competitiveness (NCIC) was formed to respond to economic development needs for the Great Lakes Region. Initial funding for the non-profit organization was received from the federal government and matched with funding from the State of Ohio. NCIC plans to drive long-term economic growth and job creation by leveraging new and existing businesses, technology, training, information and funding. NCIC provides loans to support product and business development for the start-up of new businesses and expansions of existing businesses. NCIC also leverages existing local, state and federal government organizations to supply a comprehensive set of goal-oriented services.
Power Systems Technology Project
Beginning in 1954, scientists at Mound pioneered the “nuclear battery” technology that has powered instruments and experiments to probe the solar system, enable weather and navigational satellites and allow people to dive to the coldest parts of the oceans in heated swimsuits.
Today, the Power Systems Technologies Project resides at the Department of Energy's Idaho facility. It is focused on the fabrication and testing of radioisotopic thermoelectric generators (RTGs) - or nuclear batteries - used as a power and heat source for deep-space missions. These include Galileo, launched in 1989 to study Jupiter; Ulysses, launched in 1990 to study the polar regions of the Sun; and most recently Cassini, in October 1997, which will work its way towards Saturn for in-depth study of that planet.
