Economic Development Work Group
The Economic Development Workgroup (EDW) efforts have focused on transportation, housing, employment, and entrepreneurship. It has assembled a strong cross-section of community and positional leaders that have influenced decisions at the state level to address job disparities through greater inclusion in state infrastructure projects, and greater training opportunities.
