For over 40 years, AEDC has fostered economic and community development in cooperation with regional partners to build and maintain healthy communities. AEDC is a 501(c)(3) Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), certified by the U.S. Treasury Department’s CDFI Fund. Headquartered in Humboldt County, our mission is to promote and foster economic development within underserved communities and among disadvantaged populations throughout Northern California. As a nonprofit, mission-driven entity, we offer access to affordable loan capital and business development services to small businesses and nonprofit organizations that are financially viable but have difficulty accessing affordable capital from banks or other conventional lenders. AEDC also offers programs that support economic prosperity, building networks and convening stakeholders and by facilitating public/private partnerships. As a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), we are a private financial institution that is dedicated to supporting the economic stability of the Northern California communities with a deep commitment to racial equity and a just economy, including an ability to build relationships with Tribal Nations and with businesses and leadership organizations supporting communities of color.
