Our Projects

Process to Identify Projects

The MADE CDC will identify specific projects within a targeted section of the region on which to work.  With each project, the MADE CDC will identify its vision, outline a strategy and approach, and create a tactical plan for implementation including the resources needed.   

 

Criteria for where, and when, to engage include:

  • A sizeable population or neighborhood

  • Geographic or industry boundaries with underperforming assets or markets and economic throughput and analysis indicates a likelihood of improved outcomes as a result of action

  • Presence of interested (social, religious, educational, government) public agencies

  • Existence of, or potential for, property aggregation that could yield operational mass

  • Capacity and desire to address the problem exists

  • External conditions suggest resolution would be accretive to the region

  • Loans or gifts from private individuals or organizations
