NEOEDD works closely with communities to provide financial, technical, and educational resources for entrepreneurs/ small businesses, nonprofits, and municipalities in Northeast Oregon (Baker, Union and Wallowa counties).
We support Northeast Oregon’s small businesses and entrepreneurs with workshops, funding (loans, Individual Development Accounts, and other resources), and technical support (e.g. researching feasibility, writing marketing plans; coaching on employment issues; and working on internal or external Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion issues).
NEOEDD supports Northeast Oregon’s municipalities by providing professional assistance to community leaders and government employees. We support our municipalities by administering CDBG funds and certified payroll services; facilitating meetings and strategic planning sessions; collecting public input and researching project feasibility; assisting with procurement and infrastructure projects; providing organizational and project development; grant-writing; and working on internal or external Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) issues.
We support Northeast Oregon’s nonprofit staff and board members by strengthening their ability to fulfill their community-based missions. We support nonprofits with workshops (e.g. organizational development and management; grant-writing; and diversity, equity, and inclusion). We also offer technical assistance (e.g. strategic planning, feasibility studies, grant-writing and administration, organizational development, fiscal sponsorship and program administration).
NEOEDD supports Northeast Oregon’s low- to moderate-income residents by providing a matched-savings Individual Development Account program. We also seek community engagement in resiliency efforts and our CEDS process.
Please use this form to submit projects for potential inclusion in the Northeast Oregon Economic Development District’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). Once projects are included, you can use the CEDS to demonstrate that your project has been listed in a regional plan. Projects should have a positive impact on economic or community development.
To be included in the CEDS, projects must have a public or non-profit sponsor. Private projects should not be submitted and will not be included in the CEDS.
You may submit multiple projects by returning to this page. The space for providing answers will expand. Please rank the projects that you are submitting, with 1 being your first priority, 2 your second priority, and so on.
The NEOEDD board will consider new project additions at their quarterly meetings.
