Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS)
COIC is designated by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration (EDA) as the “Economic Development District” for Central Oregon. Within this role COIC is responsible for identifying priority economic development project needs within the region, articulating regional needs to the EDA, and assisting local governments in applying for grant funding through the EDA. EDA grant categories include: public works infrastructure, technical assistance, planning, and economic adjustment.
As an Economic Development District, COIC is also responsible for creating and maintaining a regional Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. The current CEDS was completed in 2007 and updated in 2011.
COIC is in the process of revising and expanding the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for the Central Oregon region. The strategy will focus primarily on the development of:
- A framework for regional collaboration on economic development priorities, needs identification, and program alignment.
- Coordinated priority strategies to build regional and community capacity/readiness to support business retention, expansion, and recruitment, and to address economic resilience.
