Community Information

Centrally located between Seattle and Spokane along the I-90 corridor, Grant County, WA is a great place to live and work. We have less traffic, less rain, and a lower cost-of-living than Western Washington, yet we are only a day trip away from the coast and mountains. Within the county, Moses Lake is one of the best outdoor recreation sites in the state with plenty of boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, and ORV opportunities. Grant County is also home to one of the nation’s premier outdoor concert venues, the Gorge, where you can enjoy summer concerts from popular entertainers. Our community college was ranked #1 in the state for 2022 by niche.com. We are an agricultural community (the nation's top potato producing county), but also an aviation, manufacturing, and technology hub as companies take advantage of the county's high-speed fiber-optic network and some of the lowest electricity rates in the nation.
