Catawba Regional Council of Governments 2021 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS)

Through a grant from the EDA CARES Act of 2020, the Catawba Regional Council of Governments has added a powerful tool for its regional partners.  The Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) contributes to effective economic development in communities within the regions through a locally-based, regionally-driven economic development planning process.

This website presents a link to the digital version of the most recent update to the Catawba Region’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). The CEDS is a formalized planning process developed by the federal Economic Development Administration (US EDA) to promote an area-wide assessment of economic trends and infrastructure needs within multi-county districts such as the Catawba Region.  The digital format ensures that the CEDS document is continually updated as economic conditions evolve.
