The national network of Economic Development Districts (EDDs) consists of over 400 regional organizations designated by the U.S. Economic Development Administration. EDDs encourage economic development planning and project implementation in distressed urban, suburban, and rural regions by opening the door for local communities to access grant and loan funding opportunities, administrative and technical assistance, data and technology resources, and other resources and support.
As part of its EDA-funded EDD Community of Practice (EDD CoP), the NADO Research Foundation has created this interactive EDD map that provides information about each EDD’s service area, website, contact information, Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), and EDA regional office. It also includes two search functions: one that allows the user to quickly identify which EDD serves any address or location and one to search the map by the name of the EDD.
Note: The map may take a few moments to load the first time it is viewed.
