Latino Economic Development Center

Established in 1991, the Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC) aims to catalyze the economic and social advancement of low- to moderate-income Latinos and other D.C. area residents.  To do so, it offers a range of programs designed to equip people with the skills and tools necessary to achieve financial independence and become community leaders.  To support entrepreneurs who have difficulty obtaining credit from mainstream financial institutions, it created a “Community Asset Fund for Entrepreneurs,” which has provided more than $6 million in capital since 1997.  LEDC also engages in advocacy work to promote policies and programs focused on economic inclusion and civic engagement.
