Economic Development

The Board serves as a vital link between local communities & businesses and federal & state funding agencies. The Regional Planning Board system was created to streamline the process by which local communities apply for economic development grants. Programs address a wide range of services including economic development, transportation, community development, land use, water resources and small business development.
