Portage County Port Authority

Powering savings on key economic projects.

The Portage Advantage

The Portage County Port Authority (PCPA), created by the Portage County Board of Commissioners, provides an additional economic development tool for Portage County.

Because of our tax-exempt status, the Portage County Port Authority can pass savings on to economic development projects. That makes more projects possible.

These are just a few of many benefits provided to Portage County by the PCPA.
