Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

The Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for Northern Kentucky is a part of a continuing economic development planning process aimed at providing an analysis of Northern Kentucky’s economic successes, problems and opportunities. The CEDS sets forth a plan of action including goals and objectives; and establishing measures to determine whether and to what extent goals and objectives have been met.   

The results of this planning effort, as well as the plans from the fourteen other Area Development Districts, are presented to the Department for Local Government (DLG) for use in planning and development programs in Kentucky.   This plan conforms to requirements of the Economic Development Administration (EDA) Reform Act of 1998 that requires an economic development strategy in order to qualify for assistance under most EDA programs.   During this statewide effort by all fifteen area development districts, assistance and coordination was provided by the Department for Local Government. 

The CEDS is created every 5 years and updated annually. NKADD's most recent CEDS was created in 2017. The 2017 CEDS as well as the 2012 CEDS its updates are accessible below.
