The 2023 CCEDA Policy Conference on June 5-6th in Sacramento, CA centers our focus on the impact of state efforts and community economic development organization on the daily, lived experience of the low-income communities and communities of color.

Who is encouraged to join this event?

The event will have something to offer for organizations, institutions, and individuals involved in Community Economic Development that seek to uplift low-income communities and communities of color. CDCs, CAAs, CAPs, CDFIs community-based organizations, financial institutions, lenders, banks, government officials, policy makers, and other nonprofit organizations of all staff levels are welcome!

What is the event focus?

The theme, Funding a More Equitable California: Community Development in Low-Income Communities of Color, encourages us to consciously consider how elected representatives, financial institutions, and community economic development organizations can work together and leverage networks to advance a more equitable economic vision in which low-income communities of color thrive.

In the wake of economic crisis and growing inequality, community economic development organizations like CDCs, CDFIs, and CAAs have served as effective tools to address the needs of low-income communities. Moreover, those who have taken up these tools have come to greater reflect the communities they serve, as more BIPOC have started CEDs and advanced to positions of leadership.

Supporting and growing this network of organizations can scale the effective work they are doing to bring equity to the state’s economy. Our capacity to make a meaningful difference, as CEDs, requires strong working relationships with elected officials and financial institutions.
