Comprehensive Economic
Development Strategy (CEDS)


The Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) is a five year roadmap for improving economic conditions and resiliency. This economic development focused “strategic plan” outlines goals and actions for the region, and is useful in applying for grant opportunities. The CWEDD adopted its 2020-25 CEDS at its February 11, 2021 Board meeting.
