California Enterprise Development Authority (CEDA) Celebrates 10 Years

In 2006, the California Association for Local Economic Development (CALED) established the California Enterprise Development Authority (CEDA) to address gaps in economic development financing.


CALED sponsored the creation of CEDA, a Joint Powers Authority formed by the Cities of Selma, Lancaster, and Eureka to provide alternative financing options to manufacturers, 501(c)(3) non-profits & California communities, with the ultimate mission of supporting economic development.
