The U.S. Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration regulations require the Ohio Valley Regional Development Commission to develop a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) every five years. During 2022, OVRDC developed a comprehensive 5-year plan compliant with EDA’s final regulations regarding representation from the private sector, labor, chamber of commerce, workforce development, and post-secondary education.
The outcome of the CEDS is to be used as a tool for understanding the regional economy and for taking action to improve it. The CEDS incorporates other planning efforts in the OVRDC region where appropriate.
Comments on the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) update can be submitted by emailing Jessica Keeton, Economic Development Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org . Comments must be received by October 26, 2022.
