The OEDA area is located in the northwestern corner of the state, consisting of the following eight counties: Beaver, Cimarron, Dewey, Ellis, Harper, Texas, Woods and Woodward. The OEDA jurisdiction boundaries were designated by the Oklahoma Industrial Development and Park Commission and subsequently adopted by the Commission on December 9, 1970, and recognized and appointed as a Sub-State Planning District by Executive Order dated May 21, 1971. The OEDA District was designated by the Economic Development Administration (EDA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce as an Economic Development District (EDD) in July 2000. The EDA is the primary economic development agency for the federal government.
