Programs 2022


The HCEDC is committed to helping you access the resources needed to build a healthy business. To make this possible, we have partnered with a dedicated team of lenders to provide a wide variety of personalized loans. Together, we will explore your eligibility for available financing and incentive programs and walk you through application preparation and closing process. Our dedicated team is here to be a resource for you even after your loan closes!


Whether you are an experienced entrepreneur or looking to start a new venture, we can help you sharpen your skills to take your business to the next level. We have partnered with chambers, local colleges, universities and training experts in the fields of finance, sales and business to provide a variety of lectures, courses and workshops throughout Hudson County. Our training ranges from two-hour lectures to six-week courses; in-depth, advanced training up to 15 weeks is also provided to established businesses.

We focus on helping businesses evaluate the realities of starting a business and help those in the early years of operating a new business to achieve stability and sustainable business practices. Financial education is a priority and we offer education topics ranging from: knowing and improving your credit score, financing and accounting tools to manage your business.
