Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS)
The Southern Georgia Regional Commission's (SGRC) CEDS is designed to bring together the public and private sectors in the creation of an economic road map to diversify and strengthen the regional economy. The SGRC CEDS will analyze the regional economy and serve as a guide for establishing regional goals and objectives, a regional plan of action, and the investment priorities and funding sources. The SGRC CEDS is a regionally-owned strategy that is the result of a continuing economic development planning process developed with regional public and private sector participation.
