Welcome to WAEDD

Western Arizona Economic Development District

Welcome to WAEDD!

WAEDD is a federally designated Economic Development District (EDD) that helps lead the locally-based, regionally driven economic development planning process that leverages the public, private, and non-profit sectors' involvement to establish a strategic blueprint for regional collaboration.

Economic Development Districts are multi-jurisdictional entities, commonly composed of multiple counties such as La Paz and Yuma in western Arizona.

Our purpose is to drive rural prosperity by mobilizing human infrastructure, financial investment, physical assets, and natural capital to generate a healthy and collaborative local economy.
