2017 Community Economic Development Awards (CEDA)

In 2006, SEDC started a new program to recognize outstanding communities in our region for their efforts in advancing the economic viability of their community through economic and community development programs. The awards recognize exceptional projects/programs of communities for efforts in the areas of Business Retention and Expansion, Business Recruitment, Community Development and Community Involvement.

The respective state associations in our region have had the opportunity to submit entries either through their own state-wide CEDA competition or to submit entries that would qualify based on awards programs they already have in place.

 

Entries were judged based on the following criteria:

INNOVATIVENESS

The program or project demonstrates innovative approaches to institutional, financial, technical or legal aspects of economic and community development.

TRANSFERABILITY

THe program or project shows potential use by other economic and community development agencies or practitioners for similar opportunities or solutions. the program or project should be readily transferable to comparable situations in other communities.

COMMUNITY COMMITMENT AND LEVERAGE

The program or project makes it possible for others to achieve a greater impact by joining public/private participation or by intergovernmental or state/local involvement to leverage resources. support from volunteers should be demonstrated and not just success of paid staff/consultants.

MEASURED OBJECTIVES

Entries gave descriptions of results that demonstrated a specific objective that the program or project was able to achieve. Examples might be jobs created or retained, capital investment, community development issue addressed or additions to the tax base.
