The Center for Economic Development and Community Resilience is part of Ohio University’s George V. Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Service. Working in partnership with economic development districts (EDDs), JobsOhio, the Governor’s Office of Appalachia, and others, the Center brings the considerable resources of the Voinovich School to help communities in Ohio address critical challenges of building competitive and resilience economies. The Center has a distinguished record of conducting economic impact analysis, fiscal impact analysis, workforce analysis (e.g., skillshed analysis), and a host of other economic policy approaches to support projects, communities, and companies undergoing economic transition. The Center’s project portfolio includes multiple federally funded projects (in partnership with Buckeye Hills, OMEGA, OVRDC, and JobsOhio) through the U.S. Economic Development Administration. Additionally, the Center serves as the educational partner for the Ohio Economic Development Institute, a joint initiative between the Ohio Economic Development Association, JobsOhio, and Ohio University’s Voinovich School to certify economic developers in the state of Ohio.
