Economic Development

The Economic Development program provided by the Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission is funded in part by the Economic Development Administration (EDA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The program provides ongoing technical assistance to member counties and communities to continue the diversification of their local economies through the creation, attraction, expansion, and retention of jobs.

The Commission serves as the district office for the Economic Development Administration. As an EDA district office, the Commission's function is to market the EDA programs, solicit potential projects from communities within the Region, act as a liaison with the staff at the EDA regional office in Chicago to ensure projects meet program requirements, and assist in the preparation of applications including the gathering of necessary project information and mapping.
