NOLA’s Mission:

NOLA was created by Clallam EDC to advance the economic development, business prosperity, and quality of life for the people of North Olympic Peninsula region by providing input with a shared purpose and unified voice to our elected representatives and officials. For more information or input please email 

Our region’s two Economic Development Councils (EDC) of Clallam and Jefferson Counties coordinated the efforts of 27 agencies – two counties, several cities, five local tribes, and multiple NGOs – to collaboratively establish the Emerald Coast Opportunity Zone (ECOZ).

Our Governor approved our joint application and 14 census tracts now make up the ECOZ expanding our collective work even further. The exciting regional collaboration that formed the ECOZ holds tremendous potential. The partners of the Emerald Coast Opportunity Zone are working to attract investors of all types from around the nation who are considering investing their funds in businesses and real estate projects located in Opportunity Zones.  The overall goal is to create a positive social impact in our unique peninsula of Washington state.
