INCOG assists member governments and businesses in the identification of potential infrastructure projects and provides technical assistance with the development of applications for both the Community Development Block Grant/Economic Development Infrastructure Financing (CDBG/EDIF) program, and the Economic Development Administration (EDA) program. Staff is available to assist members with the development of local strategies and how to take full advantage of existing financial resources for infrastructure development.

In 2008, INCOG was designated as an Economic Development District (INCOG-EDD) by the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration. The INCOG-EDD serves Creek, Osage, and Tulsa counties. INCOG’s Economic Development staff provides services and support for member counties and communities. 

Staff also prepares and updates the INCOG-EDD Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) every five years with annual amendments as needed. The goal of the CEDS process is to facilitate the planning process for the region by generating a locally based blueprint for economic growth and development. The CEDS also allows communities within the region to be eligible for federal Economic Development Administration (EDA) funding and identifies specific economic development projects. The CEDS is also recognized asan eligible planning document for other federal funding opportunities.
