Community Economic Development
The CFDC of Middlesex County works closely with community partners and provides partial funding for joint projects which encourage economic opportunity in Middlesex. Any local group interested in developing a community project may apply for a small grant under our CED “Special Projects” Funding Program.
Funding may be possible for non-profit initiatives that:
provide long-term economic benefit to Middlesex County
do not create a dependency on government funds
are jointly funded by other sources
demonstrate the ability to create and/or maintain local jobs
In order to apply for a grant (of up to $500.00), a formal CED Project Proposal must be submitted to the CED Officer for consideration.
For more information about Community Economic Development projects or Special Projects funding, please contact our office at
