Founded in 1979, Commonwealth aims to build a connected community for all residents of Dane County.  Key program areas include affordable housing development, job training and support, business incubation, and community engagement.  The CDC runs two business incubators, one for start-ups and the other for growing businesses, which currently provide affordable space for 32 enterprises.  Other key achievements include the renovation of 135 properties, the creation of a tool lending library, and the development of Third Lake Market—a commercial development project that includes a credit union to meet the community’s previously unmet need for financial services.
