comprising the five counties served by the Commission. The designation of southwestern Wisconsin
as an EDD brings to nine the number of districts in the State of Wisconsin (See Plate I-1).
As part of the basis for district designation, an area must have at least one county that has
been designated by EDA as a Redevelopment Area under the Public Works and Economic
Development Act of 1965, as amended. Three southwestern Wisconsin counties were designated in
1978. These were Iowa, Lafayette and Richland counties. Grant County was formally designated
May 17, 1988, as a Redevelopment area, as well. Such areas have been determined to be statistically
qualified for assistance from the Economic Development Administration.
