Posted on: October 4th, 2012 by Kate Humphrey

NADO’s 2012 Innovation Awards recognized 64 projects from 22 states for their creative approaches to regional community and economic development, including the project described below. Click here for the full list of winners.

The objective of the North Central Pennsylvania Partnership for Regional Economic Performance (PREP) initiative is to encourage a more coordinated and efficient approach to the delivery of economic development and business assistance. PREP is a statewide program launched in response to budget cuts that requires shared work programs among economic development agencies. The North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission coordinates the partnership as one of four core
providers in the area’s PREP consortium. Targeted service providers are encouraged to identify their unique assets and business assistance competences so that the group as a whole could identify where any critical gaps or duplications exist. The development of a strategic coordinated service delivery plan supports the long-term goal of a coalition-based strategy for the provision of critical economic development services.
