The Eastern Plains Economic Development Corporation (EPEDC) of eastern Montana was established in 2006. This public benefit, regional economic development corporation is a private, nonprofit organization incorporated under the laws of the State of Montana. The five counties of Carter, Dawson, Fallon, Prairie, and Wibaux, along with the incorporated communities of Baker, Ekalaka, Glendive, Plevna, Richey, Terry, and Wibaux, joined forces to create a means to encourage, stimulate, and promote economic development in this area of Montana. The county commissioners of each county government all agreed to the formation of the Eastern Plains EDC and passed resolutions in support of the formation of an Economic Development District.
Organization of the Eastern Plains EDC and development of the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) received assistance from the Eastern Plains Resource Conservation and Development (EPRC&D) Area, Inc., whose headquarters are located in Sidney, Montana. The Eastern Plains RC&D Area, Inc. includes l6 counties in eastern Montana, including the five counties in the Eastern Plains EDC. The Eastern Plains RC&D was financially assisted in this endeavor with CDBG funds through the Town of Wibaux, EDA funds through the U. S. Department of Commerce, and CRDC state funds through the Montana Department of Commerce.
The Eastern Plains EDC is an organization of cities, towns, counties, economic development organizations, and private citizens brought together for the purpose of forming and maintaining an Economic Development District (EDD). This area is also a five-county Certified Regional Development Corporation (CRDC) of the Eastern Plains Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Area, Inc. approved by the State of Montana (see CEDS, Appendix 1). The Southeastern Montana Development Corporation (SEMDC) of Colstrip, Montana currently provides the services of their Small Business Development Center and Revolving Loan Fund to this CRDC.
