The goal of the CEDS process is not just to create an accessible, well-researched, and engaging planning document – though that’s really important!  It is ultimately meant to encourage action and create the space for impactful initiatives to emerge that meet the economic development goals of the region.  As part of its Stronger CEDS, Stronger Regions (https://www NULL.cedscentral NULL.com/) program, the NADO Reserach Foundation has launched a new case studies series that features “CEDS in Action” (https://www NULL.cedscentral NULL.com/ceds-in-action NULL.html) – examples of transformative projects that were inspired or identified through the CEDS process.  These short case studies cover a variety of focus areas and all are connected in some way to a region’s CEDS:   

  • Northern Minnesota Entrepreneur Academy (Headwaters Regional Development Commission, MN) (https://www NULL.cedscentral NULL.com/ceds-in-action NULL.html)
  • Maupin Fiber Project (Mid-Columbia Economic Development District, OR/WA) (https://www NULL.cedscentral NULL.com/ceds-in-action NULL.html)
  • Regional Impacts Dashboard (North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission) (https://www NULL.cedscentral NULL.com/ceds-in-action NULL.html)

Stay tuned for more case studies that will be posted on an ongoing basis.  Do you have you have a project or initiative that you would like featured?  Contact NADO RF Associate Director Brett Schwartz at  [email protected] (bschwartz null@null nado NULL.org).

This case studies series is presented as part of the NADO Research Foundation’s Stronger CEDS, Stronger Regions (http://www NULL.cedscentral NULL.com/) program, funded through a grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (http://www NULL.eda NULL.gov/).
