The Certified Regional Development Corporations (CRDC) program supports a regional approach to economic development, facilitating an efficient delivery of economic development programs by supporting regional capacity.
The CRDC program supports each of the CRDCs with annual funding for economic development services supporting their region, including personnel and operating expenses, and any other expenses deemed necessary to maintain the organization’s certification as a CRDC.
A CRDC must be a private, non-profit corporation, and apply for certification through a competitive state Request for Proposal (RFP) process. Current CRDC contracts expire on December 31, 2019.
