Getting us to where we are now was done by the the Economic Strategy Subcommittee—a part of the Regional Planning Committee.
A new EDD Board and 501(c)(3) organization is under development now and is proposed to include:
- The President of the ABAG Executive Board and the Chair of the RPC
- A supervisor or supervisor-designated representative from each county in the district
- City representatives, rotating, representing major employment centers, distressed areas
- Representatives from partner Bay Area economic and workforce development organizations
- Partner business organizations
- Community and labor organizations
Once adopted as an EDD, regions must produce an “Annual Performance Report” and update the CEDS at least every five years to continue to qualify.
An EDD is a county or region designated by the U.S. Economic Development Administration to receive economic and workforce-development related technical assistance and grant funding.
