Western Arizona Economic Development District


Our purpose is to undertake and promote effective economic development programs.

WAEDD is a federally designated Economic Development District (or EDD) that helps increase our region’s economic competitiveness, support community-led economic development, and help our region’s communities develop resilient and agile local economies.

WAEDD's long-term goal is to establish an economic development planning framework, process, and strategy that supports private capital investment and job creation in the region.
