Regional Development

Grant Proposals and Administration

The Regional Planning & Development staff assists localities in the preparation of many different grants for the improvement of quality of life and for needed infrastructure. Among these are the Texas Capital Fund for infrastructure and Surface Transportation Improvement Grants for downtown improvement of cities. Through the use of infrastructure grants, lending programs, Economic Development Administration grants, and other sources, we work with governments, businesses, and economic development organizations to find and provide funding for continued economic development in the region.

Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS)

CEDS is a survey conducted on the economic state of the North East Texas Economic Development District (NETEDD) as mandated by the EDA. This survey addresses the strengths and weaknesses of NETEDD, consisting of eleven counties encompassing over 6,500 square miles and is home to approximately 293,000 people.

The CEDS survey is completed with input from individuals from all over the NETEDD region including, but not limited to, economic development managers, city managers, chambers of commerce, representatives from housing, education, and health, political and public advocates, and other interested parties. The CEDS is updated every five years to assess the economic progress and to set new economic goals for the region.
