We accomplish this through programming that focuses on strengthening existing minority-owned small businesses, cultivating the entrepreneurial spirit of start-ups. HEDC is the only area-Community Development Corporation (CDC) offering economic development initiatives purposefully designed to address the needs of the Kansas City area's most under-served small-business community.

Since tracking data, more than 3600 individuals have participated in more than 40,000 hours of combined training related to the planning, start-up, and growth of small businesses. During this time, HEDC has helped facilitate the start-up and growth of more than 600 local small businesses. HEDC, through its mission and vision, aligns with AmeriCorps VISTA's priority for programs that create economic opportunities to low-income individuals.
