2022 CEDS Draft

A Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) is the result of a local planning process designed to guide the economic growth of an area. The primary objective of the CEDS process is to help create jobs, foster more stable and diversified economies, and improve overall living conditions. It provides a mechanism for coordinating the efforts of individuals, organizations, local governments, and private industries impacted by economic development. Furthermore, a CEDS is required to qualify for Economic Development Administration (EDA) assistance under its public works, economic adjustment, and other planning programs, and a CEDS is a prerequisite for designation by EDA as an Economic Development District (EDD).
