RETURN ON INVESTMENT
 

The Return on Investment measures the amount of federal and state funds received by the ECFRPC to support our local partners or funds received within our region which are directly tied to our programs, such as EDA CEDS, relative to the amount paid on assessments during the past five years. To calculate the ROI, the net gain ($57.5 million) was divided by the total assessment costs ($4.4 million).
 

Based on this formula, the region gained $13.07 for every $1 paid to the ECFRPC.
