In 2019 we held Fund Development trainings, including development finance and market analysis, and held Climate Adaption workshops focusing on the climate change challenges facing low income communities and how our communities can be more resilient to global warming. In addition, CCEDA has completed case studies and action plans for CDCs and others to address homelessness and the need for more shelter and housing for the most vulnerable of populations.

In 2022, CCEDA is addressing the growing needs of community organizations to secure real estate, for themselves and for their programs. And CCEDA is developing legislation to address the need for more financial and technical support to California CDCs and CDFIs, who are seeking millions to capitalize underserved communities, businesses and organizations.

If you want to become a member or continue your membership in an organization that enhances your growth and leadership, fosters the advancement of a vibrant and healthy community economic development field, provides access to a professional network of individuals who are making a difference in California’s communities, and promotes the development and dissemination of worthy information, ideas, common goals and practices in the CED field – you should definitely become a member or renew your membership in CCEDA today.
