The Flint Hills Economic Development District
The Flint Hills Economic Development District:
- Chase County
- Geary County
- Lyon County
- Morris County
- Pottawatomie County
- Riley County
- Wabaunsee County
The Flint Hills Economic Development District is our region's most valuable designation.
Economic Development Designation = Access to Millions of Dollars to Support Our Region.
Flint Hills Regional Council's coordinator role to oversee the implementation of our regional economic development plan is critical to the region, and no other entity is positioned to assist in this way for the seven-county area.
A designation that leads to results
The FHEDD designation was achieved through a locally-based, regionally-driven economic development planning process. It enables the Flint Hills Regional Council to apply for invitation-only and non-competitive funding through the Economic Development Administration in support of our regional economic development plan serving Chase, Geary, Lyon, Morris, Pottawatomie, Riley and Wabaunsee Counties. This district was formed in October 2014. A pre-requisite for the plan is our regional economic development plan, called the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS).
