Building Local Economies

Investing in People

Who We Are

Founded in 1989, Central Brooklyn Economic Development Corporation works to develop pathways to self-sufficiency for individuals, families and small business owners in Central Brooklyn.

Our approach to community development is centered around People. For us, this simply means, the strength of a community is rooted in the strength of its people.

We advocate for public/private investments and resources to support the expansion of hyper-local organizations and small businesses. A robust hyper-local economy is the key to closing racial wealth gaps, income disparities and improving the overall health of the community.
