Thank you for your interest in the North Central Washington Economic Development District.
NCWEDD is a membership-driven agency. Most of the communities and economic entities within our geographic reach understand the benefits of the EDD and thus elect to establish membership within the organization. The EDD is governed by a Board of Directors chosen from our membership and the Board elects officers to oversee operations with the Executive Director. The EDD has become a beneficial driving force for the North Central Washington region.
Member support made it possible for us to:
• Bring $1.07 million in federal funding to North Central Washington and member governments in 2016;
• Assist with the recruitment and relocation of innovative businesses to North Central Washington;
• Receive a USDA infrastructure grant to support the expansion of Plug In NCW’s high-amp 220 charging station network in 2017;
• Grow the tourism partnership with TOTA and the Route 97 Touring Program;
• Continue to manage the Chelan/Douglas Trends community indicators project
• And bring the Okanogan Fire Recovery Grant to a successful project end with the new website and planning data.
Overall, NCWEDD provided the information, technical assistance and grant management support that drew $5 million in foreign direct investment and the retention or creation of 167 jobs for a 514% return on investment of the $11,800 in NCWEDD member dues this fiscal year.
