Delaware Nation CEDS Purpose

The Delaware Nation is creating its 2025 – 2030 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy – a Tribal CEDS. A CEDS is a strategy-driven plan for regional economic development designed to build capacity and guide the economic prosperity and resiliency of a specific area or region. The Tribe’s CEDS identifies strategies to enhance and improve the economic environment of Delaware Nation. 


What will the CEDS do for Delaware Nation?

The Tribal CEDS will:

  • Identify opportunities and challenges to economic development in Delaware Nation’s community.
  • Develop strategies to overcome those challenges and capture those opportunities.
  • Develop a regional network of support.
  • Serve as a roadmap to rollout new programs that will support economic development, job creation, and community collaboration for the Tribal citizens of Delaware Nation.
