Anacostia Economic Development Corporation (AEDC)

Established in 1969, the Anacostia Economic Development Corporation (AEDC) aims to meet the economic needs and improve the quality of life of the District’s Anacostia/Far Southeast community.  To do so, the CDC focuses on housing development, commercial revitalization, small/minority business development, and job creation.  The CDC also houses a Business Development Center, which provides free management and technical assistance to small businesses located in, or wishing to locate in, the District.  In 2013, the CDC partnered with Bright Farms and the District to develop a 100,000 square foot greenhouse, which is expected to grow over one million pounds of produce a year while creating new local jobs.
