Mid-Columbia Economic Development District (MCEDD)

MCEDD is made up of three counties in Oregon and two counties in Washington, all bordering the Columbia River.  MCEDD was established by its five member counties who realized that by sharing a common workforce, a common geography and a number of other important factors, their economic fates were tied together.  By joining together they would benefit from better access to economic development loans and grants, pooled technical assistance, marketing and administrative resources, and most importantly, they would be able to bring a regional approach to their economic development efforts. Over the years the membership has grown to include cities, ports and chambers of commerce within the five county region.

Columbia Gorge Economic Development Association (CGEDA)

CGEDA's mission is to promote and market the Columbia Gorge Region, the Interstate 84 corridor and adjacent areas as a cost effective location for industrial and commercial business expansion, relocation and retention.
