Joplin Regional Partnership

In 2009, NCDS helped fund and launch the Joplin Regional Prosperity Initiative, a regional expansion of the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce’s economic development efforts.  Following the devastating tornado of May, 2011 Market Street Services created a new regional strategy, which led to the Accelerating Our Future campaign in 2014.  Public and private support from a region now covering seven counties across three states produced $4.5 million in funding for the new Joplin Regional Partnership, focused on improving the region’s competitive position through business retention & expansion; business attraction; and workforce development & talent recruitment.
