The State of West Virginia created the Region 8 Planning and Development Council in 1972 under the Regional Planning and Development Act to serve Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Mineral, and Pendleton Counties.  The Regional Council is responsible for planning and fostering community and economic development throughout the district.  The Regional Planning and Development Act empowers the Council to receive and expend funds; engage in comprehensive development planning; publish specialized studies; provide technical assistance to local governments; perform regional development; and exercise powers jointly or in cooperation with agencies and political subdivisions of the state.  The Regional Council receives funds from federal, state, and local governmental organizations to provide these services.  The Region 8 PDC has also received state and federal funds to create loan pools that assist new and expanding businesses.  The Regional Council possesses a trained and experienced staff and has committed local elected officials and community leaders.  In addition to its planning and development services, the Council also provides a variety of community service programs.
