Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

The Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) provides a roadmap to diversify and strengthen the regional economy. The document provides an overview of economic conditions, including: population, geography, workforce, transportation access, resources, and environment, as well as the identification and analysis of traditional and emerging clusters of significance. This information aids the CEDS strategy committee in the development of broad-based regional goals and objectives which results in a plan of action for economic growth.

The CEDS is a living document, which is updated every five years. Project’s seeking financial assistance from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA), must demonstrate how the investment addresses the goals and objectives outlined in the CEDS.
