Welcome to The Choctaw County Partnership – an economic development partnership in Choctaw County in Mississippi. This county is full of natural resources and beauty, including Choctaw Lake and the Natchez Trace Parkway. Our residents make the most of our natural resources through work and play. This area of the state has a rich history in the timber, agriculture, coal and manufacturing industries. We are home to a lignite power plant and two natural gas plants, which supply power to multiple utilities in and outside of our state.
Choctaw County is rated first in the state of Mississippi for providing the best value in public education. This county not only leads the state in education, but also in having low property taxes. These two factors with a top ten low crime rating in the state of Mississippi makes Choctaw County one of the best places to live in the state.
The Choctaw County Partnership is just a short drive away from Mississippi State University, one of the nation’s leading research universities. We’ve recently welcomed two new industrial tenants since 2015, creating 50 jobs. We are committed to growing our local industries and welcoming new businesses into the region.
