The Partnership for Success was formed in 1997 and implemented in 1998. It is a public/private partnership that serves as the funding mechanism for the Economic Development Division of the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce. More than 150 companies have invested in the program and provided 47 percent of its funding. The remaining 53 percent of funding came from contracts with the City of St. Joseph and Buchanan County.
