The JDA works to enhance the quality of life of residents of Jerusalem, encourage positive and high-quality migration, and promote commercial initiatives in the city.

In cooperation with the government and the Jerusalem Municipality, the JDA operates a long-term investment plan including broad investments in the establishment and upgrading of physical and technological infrastructures and the development of economic and employment in fields in which Jerusalem offers competitive advantages. The JDA seeks to create innovative frameworks that can provide unique “tools” for entrepreneurs in the city. To this end, the JDA provides various grants in diverse fields, serving as a one-stop shop for companies and entrepreneurs and ensuring an efficient and rapid response through a single channel, avoiding the need to contact numerous different bodies. The JDA facilitates applications for benefits and grants from all the relevant bodies and provides assistance in contacts with governmental and municipal bodies.
