Regional Industry Clusters Initiative

Charting the Course for the San Joaquin Valley’s Economic Future

In August 2011, the Office of Community and Economic Development (OCED), California State University, Fresno received an Economic Adjustment grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA), U.S. Department of Commerce, to prepare a Valley-wide industry cluster analysis and a regional strategy – Cluster Action Plan − to catalyze the growth of priority clusters. The analysis and the Cluster Action Plan have been prepared for OCED on behalf of the California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley (Partnership). The goal of the project is to support improved regional economic performance, sustainability, and shared opportunity for Valley residents, businesses and communities.

The Cluster Action Plan provides recommendations for the Valley’s next stage. Download the plan here: San Joaquin Valley Regional Industry Clusters Plan
