Founded in 1979 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization in Washington, D.C., the Corporation for Enterprise Development promotes asset building and economic opportunity strategies, primarily in low-income and distressed communities, by bringing together community practice, public policy, and private markets in new and effective ways. CFED envisions widely shared, sustainable economic well-being and an inclusive economy where everyone is fully engaged and appropriately rewarded. CFED clusters its work in three program areas—individual assets, enterprise development, and sustainable economies.
