Our three member counties (Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheboygan) have entered into a partnership to provide economic development support services throughout the region. To leverage county taxpayer dollars, the counties rely on local units of governments, private and private sector companies to leverage their investment. This enables the NLEA to field a qualified professional team that individually no single local unit of government could provide.
The NLEA works closely with all Local Units of Government within our three-county service area. The following communities invest financially to support regional economic development efforts. It is through their investment the NLEA is able to serve the entire region.
