The Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC) equips Latinos and other underserved Greater D.C. and Baltimore area residents with the skills and financial tools to create a better future for their families and communities. Participants in our programs learn how to build their long-term financial security by buying and staying in their homes, taking control of decisions affecting their apartment buildings, and starting or expanding their small businesses. The entire DC-MD-VA region is stronger when all families have the power to achieve financial independence and join with their neighbors to improve their communities.
