Public Policy

CCEDA Public Policy

CCEDA focuses its policy efforts at both the statewide and national level. CCEDA works with its partners to keep policy discussions alive though ongoing meetings and calls with legislators, department staff, community leaders, and private sector industry leaders involved in community development. Through its policy work, CCEDA ensures that scarce state community economic development resources are targeted to projects and programs sponsored by community development economic organizations serving low and moderate income communities in California.

CCEDA has increased its national policy efforts at the legislative level. CCEDA has become more involved in easing access to community development resources as the federal government increasingly became one of the remaining sources of community economic development support.
