NEOEDD’s mission is to provide resources and facilitate quality decision making for the benefit of entrepreneurs, businesses and communities in Northeast Oregon.
The Northeast Oregon Economic Development District (NEOEDD) is a public organization established in 1985. Baker, Union and Wallowa counties formed the District by Intergovernmental Agreement as a way to enhance community and economic development services in the region.
Our staff members are dedicated to the communities they serve in northeast Oregon and have strong business networking, facilitation, financial, organizational and project development skills.
If you are starting or growing a business, ask us about our business finance and business training programs.
If you are working on a public infrastructure or a community project ask us about services for local governments and community groups.
If you are part of a non-profit organization ask how we can help your board and workers strategize, fund and operate in ways that best meet your mission.
