NC Tomorrow 2014 Report: North Carolina Regional and Statewide Strategies for Comprehensive Community and Economic Development
NC Tomorrow is an initiative of the North Carolina Association of Regional Councils in partnership with the US Economic Development Administration and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development through the North Carolina Department of Commerce's Community Assistance Division. As part of this initiative, North Carolina's regional councils prepared uniform Regional Comprehensive Economic Development Strategies (CEDS) designed to identify regional priorities for economic and community development. The regional plans served as the foundation for a statewide Strategy for Comprehensive Community and Economic Development intended to function as a blueprint for state efforts to "Build Communities for Tomorrow's Jobs".To access  the final report visit: http://www.nctomorrow.org/    and to view the regional report click HERE.
