Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

CEDS – Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

The Crater Economic Development District (EDD) has developed and maintains a comprehensive economic development strategy (CEDS). The CEDS is the result of a planning process designed to help guide the economic growth within the Crater region.

A copy of the 2020 CEDS Report is available here.

The most recent Project Priority List is also available.

A recent result of the CEDS process is the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM) in Prince George County. CCAM is a joint project between the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech that provides supply chain and workforce training to support advanced technology manufacturing and new jobs in the region. CCAM was partly founded with a $3.975 million grant from the Economic Development Administration (EDA).
