The North Central Washington Economic Development District (NCWEDD) is a federally designated economic development district for the NCW region covering Okanogan, Douglas, and Chelan counties and the Colville Confederate Tribes.

The NCWEDD is responsible for regional economic development strategy and planning and collaborates with various private and public agencies to accomplish this goal. The NCWEDD brings together the private and public sectors in a partnership necessary to provide a coordinated strategy and an ongoing economic development program for the region.

Most of the communities and economic entities within our geographic reach understand the benefits of the NCWEDD and thus elect to establish membership within the organization. The NCWEDD is governed by a Board of Directors chosen from our membership and the Board elects officers to oversee operations. Committees are established to progress the work of the NCWEDD as needed. As such, the NCWEDD has become a beneficial driving force for the North Central Washington region.

The NCWEDD meets on the second Wednesday of each month at the Chelan Fire Station in Chelan, Washington from 8:45 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. All meetings are open to the public.
