NEOEDD’s mission is to provide resources and facilitate quality decision making for the benefit of entrepreneurs, businesses and communities in Northeast Oregon.

The Northeast Oregon Economic Development District (NEOEDD) is a public organization established in 1985. Baker, Union and Wallowa counties formed the District by Intergovernmental Agreement as a way to enhance community and economic development services in the region.

Our staff members are dedicated to the communities they serve in northeast Oregon and have strong business networking, facilitation, financial, organizational and project development skills.

If you are starting or growing a business, ask us about our business finance and business training programs.

If you are working on a public infrastructure or a community project ask us about services for local governments and community groups.

If you are part of a non-profit organization ask how we can help your board and workers strategize, fund and operate in ways that best meet your mission.

Upcoming DEI Round Tables

Save the dates!

Rural Oregon's nonprofit organizations are exploring how diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) can build understanding, strengthen mission impact, and ensure public benefit. To this end, NEOEDD is organizing a series of roundtable discussions for regional nonprofit board and staff to learn, share, and discuss DEI methods and strategies. The next roundtables will be held:

  • May 1 (Location TBA in Wallowa County)
  • May 2 (HatchLab Baker, 2019 A Main St. in Baker City)


These conversations will be facilitated by Alaí Reyes-Santos, an assistant professor of ethnic studies at the University of Oregon and an internationally recognized activist-scholar with particular expertise around migration, Haitian-Dominican and Dominican-Puerto Rican relations, and racial and gender dynamics in the Caribbean and its U.S. diasporas. Alaí has been involved with a number of social justice groups, including Community Alliance of Lane County, Basic Rights Oregon, and INTEGRA, a network of anti-racist scholars and organizations based in Mexico City.

Future roundtable dates are Aug. 1 (Location in Wallowa County TBD) and Nov. 7, 2018, and Feb. 6, 2019. Details forthcoming.

The sessions include lunch.The cost to attend is $25 per person per roundtable discussion. Scholarships are available; please inquire at NEOEDD, 541-426-3598.
