Is IACED membership for you?

Community Economic Development (CED) is any local action that creates economic opportunities and improves social conditions, particularly for those who are most disadvantaged. If this describes your work, you should be a a member of the Indiana Association for Community Economic Development (IACED). At IACED, we represent the interests of organizations engaged in community economic development across Indiana.

IACED is a statewide association with a local focus.  Our network of over 200 members strengthen communities and improve lives in rural, small city, and urban areas.  Members provide housing opportunity.  They meet  basic needs.  They connect Hoosiers to jobs.  They create vital public spaces.  They do all of this and more.
