About the Certified Regional Development Corporations (CRDCs)
The Certified Regional Development Corporations (CRDC) program was created by the 2003 Montana Legislature to encourage a regional approach to economic development that facilitates the efficient delivery of economic development programs by supporting regional capacity. MCA 90-1-116 provides additional information and definitions regarding the CRDC program.
The State adopted CRDC rules (Administrative Rules of Montana, Sections 8.99.301 through 8.99.306) addressing implementation of the program. The rules define the CRDC certification process, the method of quarterly distribution of assistance grants, allowable uses for assistance grants, quarterly reporting requirements and criteria for determining non-compliance and de-certification.
