2022 SEDE Network Survey Results

To better understand how states were using the Statewide Planning Grants, CREC, in partnership with the State Economic Development Executives (SEDE) Network, conducted a survey of states during the summer of 2022 to learn how the $1 million grant funds were being used at that time. A blog summarizing these initial survey results can be found here. You can see how grants were spent at the regional level, below:
