Regional Economic Strategy

The Regional Economic Strategy is designed to establish a strategic blueprint for regional collaboration in King, Kitsap, Pierce and Snohomish counties and allows local jurisdictions and eligible organizations to qualify for funding under U.S. Economic Development Administration programs, including funding programs created in response to the pandemic.

In December 2021, the Central Puget Sound Economic Development District Board of Directors adopted the strategy, which serves as the region’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS).
