AGNC completed the development of a regional Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) as a final component of the application to become an EDD and submitted it in September 2018. The counties included in the AGNC EDD are Garfield, Mesa, Moffat, Rio Blanco and Routt.

Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy
Economic Development Districts are multi-jurisdictional entities, commonly composed of multiple counties. They help lead the locally-based, regionally driven economic development planning process that leverages the involvement of the public, private and non-profit sectors to establish a strategic blueprint for regional collaboration. The strategic blueprint, known as a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), is a strategy-driven plan for regional economic development. A CEDS is the result of a “regionally-owned” planning process designed to guide the economic prosperity and resiliency of a region. It provides a coordinating mechanism for individuals, organizations, local governments, and private industry to engage in a meaningful conversation and debate about the economic direction of their region (www.eda.gov/edd/).
