The East County EDC has partnered with the South County EDC to create a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) Task Force designed to improve the prosperity of our businesses and residents. As part of the CEDS, our action plan is to collaboratively support, integrate, and expand business development and entrepreneurship, education and workforce development, infrastructure development, and quality of life in the CEDS area. A CEDS is required to qualify for Economic Development Administration (EDA) assistance under its public works, economic adjustment, and most planning programs, and is a prerequisite for designation by EDA as an Economic Development District (EDD). The EDA has approved our CEDS submission.
