Region 10 CEDS Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy
The Region 10 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) document needs an update! Regions must update their CEDS at least every 5 years to qualify for EDA assistance under its Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance Programs. CEDS contributes to effective economic development in America’s communities and regions through a locally based, regionally driven development planning process.
Please come for lunch and conversation by confirming your presence at one focus group session below. This work will engage community leaders, leverage involvement of the private sector, and establish a strategic blueprint for regional collaboration. These sessions include a SWOT analysis activity to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats facing our region in the areas of transportation, housing, regional workforce, economic environment, assets and infrastructure, demographics and diversity, schools and education.
