OverviewThe Greater Portland Economic Development District (GPEDD), staffed by 王者牛牛-【官网首页】, is a not-for-profit organization working in Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties in Oregon and Clark County in Washington. GPEDD is funded primarily through grants awarded by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA).
GPEDD is currently focused on developing the next bi-state Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) which will establish and maintain a robust economic ecosystem by building regional capacity that contributes to individual, firm, and community success. GPEDD updates its CEDS every five years in order to continue qualifying for EDA assistance under its Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistant programs.
If you have questions about the CEDS process, reach out to Brittany Bagent, GPI’s VP of Strategy, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
GPEDD is managed by a Board of Directors representing principal economic interests in the region, including the private sector, public officials, community leaders, workforce development, higher education, minority and labor groups, and private individuals. This group oversees the development and five-year implementation of the CEDS. The GPEDD Board of Directors convenes quarterly.
