About the Tri County Economic Development District
Established in 1969 as a federally-designated Economic Development District of the U.S. Department of Commerce, TEDD was created to encourage economic development in Ferry, Pend Oreille and Stevens counties through planning, research and development.
We are governed by a Board of Directors with representatives from municipal and county governments, public utility districts, a port district and tribal entities within the region. In addition, the Board of Directors includes representatives from a number of other organizations with an economic development interest as well as representatives from the business community.
Our mission: In order to sustain the highest quality of life for the people of Northeast Washington, the Tri County Economic Development District strives to develop a stable and diverse economy; to build partnerships between businesses, government and communities; and to assist businesses to grow, invest, create and retain jobs.
