Other Services Offered by PELA CFDC

Our goal is to foster projects and businesses that help develop our local economy, and ensure that the awareness of our products and services goes beyond our area. We do this by partnering with the community through leadership, knowledge-based activities that share expertise of the PELA CFDC board, and providing access to data about our economy and networks of partners. We are committed to helping Not-for-Profit Organizations, Business Associations, Co-operatives, Informal or new community practices, and municpal organizations.

Because we are part of the Community Futures Program, PELA CFDC has a vested interest in planning strategically as an active partner in community projects. We view building capacity, efficiency, and effective allocation of resources are key to growth and prosperity for both economic growth and private success.

We can provide resources for strategic planning, give access to our networks of information, and help lead and facilitate these processes to ensure success. We aim to help Not-for-Profit community-based organizations and municipal governments, ensuring that even with limited planning skills or financial resources, the organization and community that surrounds it can thrive, grow, and profit for years to come.
