CEDS Resource Library


CEDS are locally based and regionally driven economic development planning processes. These CEDS have long been a cornerstone of the U.S. Economic Development Administration’s programs and serve to engage community leaders, leverage involvement of the private sector and establish strategic blueprints for regional collaboration. CEDS from 1990 forward are included in the Resource Library, with metadata for 50 different variables.
