North Central New Mexico Economic Development District (NCNMEDD) is an association of local units of government and other organizations created to encourage and allow regional cooperation on a multitude of issues.Formation of the District came about as a result of passage of the Public Works and Economic Development Act (Public Law 89-136) by the U. S. Congress in 1965. This legislation permitted designated counties to form non-profit entities for the purpose of promoting the socioeconomic environment of its members. It also created the Economic Development Administration under the U. S. Department of Commerce. The purpose of EDA is to provide a vehicle for the delivery of financial and technical assistance to economically depressed areas throughout the nation. NCNMEDD is the region’s Council of Governments formed in 1967 under the authority of the Joint Powers Agreement Act, Section 4-22-1 to 4-22-7, New Mexico State Statues Annotated, 1953 Compilation. NCNMEDD was created originally to serve the eight counties of Colfax, Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Sandoval, Santa Fe, and Taos. Sandoval County remains a member, but is now attached for planning purposes to the Middle Rio Grande Council of Governments.
