The Community Economic Development Fund (CED) provides support to eligible localities for economic development activities, particularly projects that create employment opportunities for low- and moderate-income persons. The nature of the financial assistance available varies depending on the economic strength of the locality, which is categorized as Distressed, Transitional, or Competitive.
