What is a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS)?

A Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy, or CEDS, is an annually updated dynamic document continuously utilized as a guide to achieve agreed upon regional economic development priorities, objectives, and goals. A CEDS is required by the US Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration (EDA) for the maintenance of a region’s federal Economic Development District (EDD) designation. At a minimum, a CEDS is required to include the following under Title 13 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 303.7:

 i) A summary of economic development conditions of the Region;

ii) An in-depth analysis of economic and community development strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (commonly known as a “SWOT” analysis);

iii) Strategies and an implementation plan to build upon the Region’s strengths and opportunities and resolve the weaknesses and threats facing the Region, which should not be inconsistent with applicable State and local economic development or workforce development strategies; and

iv) Performance measures used to evaluate the Planning Organization’s successful development and implementation of the CEDS
