The Community Economic Development Association of Michigan is a trade organization that partners with communities across Michigan to help build more vibrant and healthy communities.

You may not be familiar with their name, but you likely know of their work. CEDAM has more than 230 members across the state with the heaviest concentration in Metro Detroit as well as Lansing, Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.

CEDAM still serves as the connector for the wide spectrum of groups working on community economic development in Michigan. Urban and rural CDCs, community action agencies, Habitat for Humanity affiliates, Main Street programs and neighborhoods groups – while they all serve different populations, they all have similar goals. CEDAM continues to provide a voice for these goals, which is still a vital part of Michigan’s CED industry today.

CEDAM is involved in AmeriCorps and includes programs like the Michigan Economic Income Coalition, Michigan Communities for Financial Empowerment, and the Michigan Rural Council.
