The Central Appalachia Empowerment Zone of West Virginia is a federally designated Rural Enterprise Community. It serves all of Clay County and portions of Braxton, Fayette, Nicholas and Roane Counties. In 1994, these communities developed a grassroots plan for improving the economy and quality of life of the region. The resulting federal designation has allowed CAEZ to access significant resources to implement the plan.
