Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS)

Every five years the region is responsible for building a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. It serves as a plan of action for the next five years as well as being a platform for measuring progress towards completing set goals. The plan is created through the RCRC and follows Economic Development Administration (EDA) requirements.

Local Foods Program

Local foods is an important part of our agriculturally based economy and through a regional approach with support from regional, state, and federal partners the goal is to assist in creating stability and sustainability and combat food deserts. Assistance is available to entrepreneurs and businesses that are interested in being a part of the local food ecosystem and value chain. For more information, please contact Roosevelt Custer Regional Council.

A five year action plan has been developed for ND Regions 7 & 8 after having roundtable discussions and survey input from players in local foods. The Action Plan outlines three key goals:

  • Resource Development
  • Technical Assistance
  • Regional Sustainability

The Vision West ND Housing Committee was initially established as an ad hoc committee with the primary goal of collaborating closely with the Vision West ND Board of Directors, the consortium, and the administration. The committee’s mission is to engage with various communities, community leaders, elected officials, the state of North Dakota, and other stakeholders involved in housing to facilitate the development of safe and affordable housing within the Vision West ND region
