Our Services

Economic Development

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.

Community Development

Headwaters Regional Development Commission (HRDC) recognizes that one way to help make our region successful is through community. HRDC has a robust housing team with each of our employees experienced in different project areas that can address your local needs. Our focus is supporting pilot projects, finding funding sources for initiatives, and master planning for future developments.

Housing Resources

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.

Transportation, Health, & Public Safety

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
