Kat Cammack: EDA Sending Funds to North Central Florida Regional Planning Council

This week, U.S. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., announced the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council’s Economic Development District Planning is getting funds from the Economic Development Administration (EDA).

With an investment of $210,000, the grant establishes an economic development planning framework, process, and strategy that supports private capital investment and job creation in the region served by the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council.

The Council comprises the counties of Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Suwannee, and Union Counties in Florida’s Third Congressional District. The comprehensive economic development strategy (CEDS) funded by the grant brings together stakeholders from the public and private sectors in the creation of a development roadmap to strengthen and diversify the regional economy.

“The North Central Florida region is growing at a steady clip, and it’s increasingly important to ensure we’re prepared to support upcoming population changes for the next several decades,” said Cammack. “As more people make their home in the Sunshine State, we’re ready to draw them to our region and ensure they have plentiful opportunities for employment, education, and beyond.”

The U.S. Economic Development Administration is a bureau of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
