Although traditionally held in-person inside the AACOG Boardroom, current circumstances - and technology - have afforded us the opportunity to continue providing this informative resource to our members virtually.
AACOG will be hosting these webinars every Thursday, starting tomorrow, August 13th.
This will be a series of presentations by economic development partners in the region, including co-sponsor U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA); the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD); the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); the Texas Department of Agriculture; and other federal and state agencies.
Our first presentation will help local ED professionals answer:
• What is economic development?
• How do you prepare your community for economic development?
• Who are the economic development partners in our region?
• What resources and programs are available to help your community conduct economic development?

Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) contributes to effective economic development in America’s communities and regions through a locally-based, regionally-driven economic development planning process. Economic development planning – as implemented through the CEDS – is not only a cornerstone of the U.S. Economic Development Administration’s (EDA) programs, but successfully serves as a means to engage community leaders, leverage the involvement of the private sector, and establish a strategic blueprint for regional collaboration. The CEDS provides the capacity-building1 foundation by which the public sector, working in conjunction with other economic actors (individuals, firms, industries), creates the environment for regional economic prosperity.
