 Community Development

The mission of the Community Development Program at SEDA-Council of Governments is to work with local governments and their citizens to improve communities and the lives of community residents through infrastructure and community facility projects.  Recipients of our Community Development services include the region's counties, communities, municipal authorities, and locally-based organizations. 

 Success is assisting a community through the planning, development, design, funding, and construction of much needed public infrastructure or community facility project.  In the last 30 years, SEDA-COG's Community Development Program has assisted with nearly 1,000 public infrastructure and community facility projects, resulting in community investments of nearly a half a billion dollars.  

Project Development 

Each member of the Community Development team has the knowledge and aptitude to assist communities with project development.  This development includes determining eligibility and fundability, facilitating public participation, obtaining community support, acquiring procurement compliance, preparing applications and providing assistance to design professionals.

As a project progresses our team continues to work diligently to provide superior service.  We provide grant administration, fiscal management, coordination of environmental reviews and archaeological surveys, construction management, administration of Section 3, MBE/WBE and Davis-Bacon federal labor standards.
