The Piedmont Triad Regional Council engages with all communities in the Piedmont Triad on various community and economic development projects. As part of this work, the Piedmont Triad Regional Development Corporation (PTRDC) was created and is now a designated Economic Development District (EDD) by the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA). The 501(c)3 development corporation is charged with the development of the region's comprehensive economic development strategy (CEDS), operates a small business investment loan program, hosts meetings and informational summits, offers economic development training for local government entities in the Piedmont Triad, manages the regional brownfield program and the regional food council, and provides grant administration for state, local, and federal grant programs.
