Economic Development Administration

Economic Development District (EDD)

The Northeast Missouri Regional Planning Commission is federally designated by the U.S. Department of Commerce as an Economic Development District (EDD). The District is charged with responsiveness to the region’s economic needs and this designation allows NEMO RPC to develop and commit resources to activities and challenges throughout the region with an Economic Development focus.

In addition, the District maintains a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for the region which is updated every 5 years and submitted to the Department of Commerce and other federal and state partner agencies.
