What We Do
There is no single recipe for prosperity, however, for the region’s communities to compete in the global economy it must explicitly address the building blocks of the knowledge-based economy such as; technology, innovation, talent, supporting entrepreneurs, and developing a high quality of life.
Not only do the lakes and forests of the Headwaters Region substantially contribute to our quality of life, they also are one of our chief competitive advantages. The HRDC has positioned itself as both resource planner and broker for some natural resource disputes
The HRDC has long recognized the relationship between livable communities and the need for safe affordable housing and has worked to increase the supply in our Region. The HRDC uses a variety of methods and partnerships to accomplish the goals of better housing for the residents in our Region.
