The East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (ECWRPC) was designated as an Economic Development District (EDD) in 1984 by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration (EDA). As part of this designation, the EDA requires ECWRPC to integrate economic resilience into its Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). This webpage provides economic development resources that support the response and recovery to COVID-19. It will be updated as resources become available.
Program contact is Tom Baron, Principal Economic Development Planner. He can be reached at 920-751-4770 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
