South Central Economic Development District (SCEDD)

The South Central Economic Development District (SCEDD) is a consortium of thirteen rural Nebraska counties who see improving rural economies as a regional rather than purely local issue. For these counties, SCEDD is the resource businesses and communities rely on for advice and connections to programs designed to help businesses grow and insure community sustainability.


We are especially interested in helping projects in our region that:

  • Create sustainable communities
  • Make existing businesses stronger
  • Help entrepreneurs get started in business
  • Increase housing opportunities
  • Encourage tourism in the region

 If you have ideas, we want to talk. If you have problems, we want to hear from you. If you want expert advice – no matter what the topic – we can point you in the right direction. In addition to a large network of contacts at local, state, and federal agencies, SCEDD can assist with a wide variety of projects and enterprises for businesses and communities.

Are you starting, expanding, seeking to exit or struggling in a business?

SCEDD can provide:

  • Consultation
  • Connection to resources
  • Funding opportunities
