Project Description

The Valley Economic Development Center (VEDC) will use CED funds to support the expansion of Pacoima Entrepreneur Business Accelerator (PEBA), a professional meeting space and entrepreneur resource center located within the Pacoima Entrepreneur Center, a new 13,897 square foot community facility opening in the Pacoima community of Los Angeles. VEDC will complete build-out and tenant improvements of PEBA and offer area small business owners with access to a complete “one-stop” small business management experience and meeting space for client interactions within the community in which they live and work. VEDC will also make available lending capital through VEDC’s $25 million loan fund to borrowers. These activities will help businesses sustain financial growth and bring new, full-time jobs to an area with extremely elevated poverty and unemployment rates and a well-documented lack of economic opportunity. Through this project, four businesses will create a minimum of 40 new jobs in an area that has poverty and unemployment rates above both California and national levels.

Proposed Project Outcomes

- Number of jobs to be created: 40
- Number of business(es) to be created or expanded: 4
- Funds to be leveraged: $1,000,000

Workforce, Inc. d.b.a RecycleForce, will use CED funds to expand its recycling business by increasing the volume and value of recyclable material. This will be done in large part by expanding a recent reverse logistics pilot project into a fully operational department within the recycling plant and creating new positions to operate equipment RecycleForce has purchased that will more effectively sort metal from plastic. Reverse logistics, the process of receiving returned components or products for the purpose of recapturing value from them or ensuring their proper disposal, is a burgeoning industry as companies become increasingly focused on cost reduction by seeking ways to economically manage product returns and avoid fines for mishandling returns and/or defective materials. This project will create 40 new jobs in the high-growth recycling industry. These jobs will be filled predominantly by low-income formerly-incarcerated individuals, most of whom are unemployable in the private sector due to lack of education and work experience coupled with one or more felony convictions.

Proposed Project Outcomes

- Number of jobs to be created: 40
- Number of business(es) to be created or expanded: 1
- Funds to be leveraged: $2,044,161

Once a thriving economic sector of the agricultural community, the number of seed growers has dwindled to a handful. By focusing on regionally adapted organic, open pollinated seed production, new jobs will be created for seed growers, biologists, soil technicians, and complementary businesses like beekeepers, compost, equipment, and tool providers specific to the industry. Open pollinated seed can be saved, thus allowing growers to continue adapting these varieties to their specific environment. CP will provide specialized technical assistance for seed growing, access to seed stock, cleaning equipment, and financial assistance through IDAs (matched savings accounts) to support these new growers. This project will create 40 new, full-time jobs.

Project Description

Economic and Community Development Institute (ECDI) will use $800,000 in CED funds to launch the Growing Entrepreneurs Initiative. This initiative will holistically address major barriers food-based business owners face, in terms of business financing, training, and incubation services. The project will invest in Peach LLC, the newest restaurant from Grow Restaurant Corporation (GRC) a Columbus-based restaurant group that has proven to be a catalyst for local economic development. This project will also expand ECDI’s food-based business incubator the Food Fort, a commercial kitchen and commissary for rent by Columbus’ food entrepreneurs. The Food Fort has turned away a growing number of clients, and needs to expand to continue to meet increasing demand. This project will create 122 full-time jobs, of which 92 positions will be filled by low-income individuals.

Proposed Project Outcomes

- Number of jobs to be created: 122

Project Description

Washington Community Alliance for Self-Help (CASH) will utilize CED funds to develop and implement the Business Accelerator Project (BAP) which will create 52 new, full-time jobs through small business development in the Puget Sound Region. The BAP will increase economic vitality by providing a business incubator and business incubation services that are focused exclusively on low-income individuals. The CED-funded Business Incubator includes five client workspaces with computers, printer, fax machine, copier, and mail services. Business incubation activities include specialized technical assistance around marketing, sales, bookkeeping, business finances, and operations as well as retail incubation services in which clients gain access to hands-on technical assistance to advance product businesses. Clients enrolled in the BAP also have the opportunity to apply for a variety of financial products and services, including microloans and Individual Development Accounts (both of which are not funded through CED funds). BAP will equip low income individuals to overcome generational poverty, unemployment, and lack of access to traditional financial products and services by creating 52 full-time jobs—40 businesses and 12 positions filled by additional employees.

Project Description

Impact Seven, Incorporated will use CED funds to provide a loan to finance the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant and leverage additional capital needed to expand production capacity. The loan will be provided to Advanced Plating Technologies (APT), a Milwaukee manufacturing community that produces highly-engineered metal. To increase APT’s access to affordable financing needed to increase production capacity and satisfy potential demand, Impact Seven will support the replacement of the company’s aging wastewater treatment plant by constructing a new, state-of-the-art treatment facility. This will double the company’s production and water treatment capacity, to meet the company’s expansion needs and ensure environmental compliance well into the future. Other components of the project will include equipment and energy-efficiency upgrades and the addition of new plating lines and powder coating equipment. This project will provide needed financing for a job-creating business expansion in the heart of Milwaukee, in an area that has long suffered from above-average rates of unemployment and poverty and below-average access to jobs. APT will create 28 new, permanent, full-time positions, 75% of which are entry-level jobs that low-income people can get and keep.

Proposed Project Outcomes

- Number of jobs to be created: 28
- Number of business(es) to be created or expanded: 1
