How?
Key
Takeaways
on EDA
Project
What?
• A 24-month project funded by EDA for CREC and
partners to promote alignment across state and
regional economic development organizations
Why?
• State and local economic development strategies
and investments are often poorly aligned and not
very well coordinated
• States tend to operate independently of EDA
supported initiatives, including those identified in
regional CEDS
How?
• Through applied research, education, and technical
assistance, this project will enable state and local
leaders to create jobs and achieve economic
recovery through better:
 Coordination of investments
 Alignment of efforts to grow key industry clusters
 Leverage common tools
Task 1: Research
Project
Tasks
Task 2: Education
Task 3: Technical Assistance
Task 1: Research

strategies and initiatives mapped against CEDS plans​
• Prepare best practice guide to inform efforts to increase
alignment, collaboration, and co-investment between states
and local EDDs
• Research and add new content for USACompetes.com
website
Task 2: Education
• Engage state leaders through a state-EDA working group to amplify EDA’s priority
tools and resources and create interaction opportunities
• Develop self-paced and instructor-led educational content for priority interests
• Develop self-paced and peer-led virtual curriculum for new state economic
development leaders​
• Deliver relevant educational content at least twice per year to key constituencies
from SEDE, NADO/DDAA, SIDO, AMCC, ARC/DRA, etc​.
• Deliver 15 webinars on topics targeted to state economic development leaders
Task 3: Technical Assistance
• Conduct a hands-on technical assistance engagement with 5-7 states through a
‘Policy Academy cohort’ process aimed at refining state economic recovery and
development strategies and integrating outcomes with local CEDS
• Deliver additional on-site and virtual technical assistance
efforts through partner conferences or peer exchanges​
• Conduct outreach and technical assistance to incorporate international
engagement strategies into local CEDS​

 New emphasis on state-local collaboration on international engagement
 Regional Leadership Discussions
 Bringing together EDA and states in each region
 State ED Leadership Curriculum
 Identified participants and beginning work on topics
Preliminary Findings
Research
• CEDS are frequently aligning with states on strategies focused on:
 Workforce development
 Industry cluster development
 Administration and governance
• CEDS are not often aligning with states on technology-based economic
development, transportation infrastructure, and business development and
assistance strategies.
• 18% of CEDS collected had at least one strategy on international trade and
investment
Preliminary Findings
Polling and Discussions
• About two-thirds of EDDs surveyed reported fair or poor 1) collaboration with
state or 2) alignment with state ED strategy
• State plans often don’t cover all factors present in CEDS – e.g., housing and
workforce
• Key reported barriers to collaboration included resource constraints, poor
communication, and lack of respect for EDDs.
Thank You!

PARTNERSHIPS
Future Interstate Highway:
As a result of the Interstate Feasibility Study conducted by the Texas Department of
Transportation (TxDOT), in the 117th Congress, H.R. 1608 was filed in the U.S. House of
Representatives and S. 705 in the U.S. Senate to designate the future interstate in
Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Colorado. Efforts continue to include this
designation in the transportation reauthorization being considered by Congress.
Economic Development:
An estimated $96 billion is being exported between Corridor states, but with a robust
transportation system the Freight Analysis Framework (FAF) projects that number could go up
to $195 billion by 2040. Additionally, Corridor communities are able to attract new primary
industries by providing a highway system that allows for the successful and timely transport of
those products to other markets. the Corridor helps fuel $280 billion in trade with Canada and
Mexico, which is more than 25% of all U.S. trade with those countries.

PARTNERSHIPS Future Interstate Highway: As a result of the Interstate Feasibility Study conducted by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in the 117th Congress, H.R. 1608 was filed in the U.S. House of Representatives and S. 705 in the U.S. Senate to designate the future interstate in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Colorado. Efforts continue to include this designation in the transportation reauthorization being considered by Congress. Economic Development: An estimated $96 billion is being exported between Corridor states, but with a robust transportation system the Freight Analysis Framework (FAF) projects that number could go up to $195 billion by 2040. Additionally, Corridor communities are able to attract new primary industries by providing a highway system that allows for the successful and timely transport of those products to other markets. the Corridor helps fuel $280 billion in trade with Canada and Mexico, which is more than 25% of all U.S. trade with those countries.
