Community Economic Development

We play an active role in community economic development within our region. The RDKB strives to partner with and to involve communities, businesses, industry, the social service sector, non-government organizations, educators and others to participate in short and long-term community and/or economic initiatives.

Our activities are varied: we provide grants directly to the community through our Grant-in-Aid program, we administer funding provided by Columbia Basin Trust's Community Initiatives Program and the federal Gas Tax Fund, we champion economic development programs through our own regional and sub-regional committees, and we participate in initiatives focused on economic development, community development or both.
