The Wasatch Front Economic Development District (WFEDD) undertakes a regional approach to economic development with support of our member counties including Davis, Morgan, Salt Lake, Tooele, and Weber. The District's mission is to support economic development plans, promote long-term economic competitiveness, and attract federal monies in order to implement local plans. The District implements its mission through six regional economic goals that include 1) attract businesses that offer higher wages; 2) retain and expand existing Utah businesses; 3) build on and improve the region's growth centers; 4) encourage entrepreneurship and innovation; 5) increase economic development capacity; and 6) maintain and improve our high-quality of life.
The District operates under the auspice of the Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC). The WFEDD is one of seven federally recognized Economic Development Districts in Utah. Every county in the State of Utah is now represented by one of Utah's regional Economic Development Districts.
