The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians is currently developing its Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), which will describe the overall plan for economic development on the Qualla Boundary for the next five years. It also will be the basis for application for federal funding in support of economic development. The Committee that is developing the CEDS is very interested in hearing your thoughts, comments and suggestions regarding the economic development needs and priorities for the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. Your input will help to make the CEDS a success. To see the planning documents and provide input, please go to http://www.nctomorrow.org/cherokeequallaboundary/.
