Southeastern Montana Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

June 2017

In 2017, Southeastern Montana Development Corporation (SEMDC) released the Southeastern Montana Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) after consultation with hundreds of residents throughout the area to address common issues, including repairing infrastructure, increasing broadband capacity to meet local needs, encouraging resilient energy development, and foster diverse, local businesses. Through the CEDS, SEMDC works to create a strong coalition of communities and businesses to facilitate the development of a resilient infrastructure, while “maintaining a traditional, rural, high quality lifestyle.” Among the many projects and initiatives contained within the CEDS, those that are most applicable to developing economic resilience emphasize Climate and Renewable Energy Development, combating inequality and unemployment, and establishing an Economic Resilience Strategy. To address this inequality and unemployment within the region, SEMDC proposes several programs for under-represented, vulnerable communities and residents. This involves the support of workforce development programs in communities that focus primarily on the disadvantaged, as well as scholarship programs that train these individuals on green energy technologies.
