The Humboldt Development Authority is an economic development agency formed by a cooperative agreement between the City of Winnemucca and the Humboldt County Board of Commissioners. It works with the Governor’s Office on Economic Development through the Northeastern Nevada Regional Development Authority (NNRDA).
