South Carolina Association for Community Economic Development
Who We Are
The South Carolina Association for Community Economic Development is a state-wide trade association of non-profit, community development corporations (CDCs) and community development financial institutions (CDFIs) within the state’s economically distressed communities. The SCACED places particular emphasis on promoting development in communities that have been left out of the economic mainstream, especially minority communities.
Through our network of members and partner organizations, SCACED strives to improve the quality of life for low wealth families and communities by advancing the community economic development industry in South Carolina. SCACED achieves this through capacity building and attracting public-private investment to local community economic development organizations, as well as influencing the public policy process in South Carolina.
