    Economic Development Tools Webinar Series:

    Ohio's Joint Economic Development District Program

    OEDA’s Economic Development Tools Webinar Series, in partnership with Bricker & Eckler, will keep you up to date on the latest requirements and best practices in these programs. Ohio has some of the most effective programs that support economic and community development. But these programs are constantly changing and being refined to keep Ohio communities competitive.

    Ohio’s Joint Economic Development District (JEDD) program is the major state program that enables collaboration between municipalities and townships to encourage investment and job creation. Over the past few years, the JEDD program has undergone a number of significant changes that impact on it’s practical use. This webinar, conducted in partnership with Bricker & Eckler, will focus on 1) the basic criteria and rules for the JEDD program; 2) case studies of how JEDD has been used to promote economic development; 3) best practices in how to establish JEDDs that are successful; and 4) lessons learned over the years.
