Background

Community Overview

The Four Corners Empowerment Zone is located in parts of three states: northeastern Arizona, southeastern Utah, and northwestern New Mexico. This area is the northern portion of the Navajo Nation, and involved twenty-two Navajo Nation Chapters (communities) and the Hopi and Ute tribes. There are two developable sites. " The EZ is an arid, windblown and eroded country, but inhabited by sturdy people who have learned to live with the harshness of the environment."

Strategic Plan Highlights
