The objective of this program is to support businesses that develop new products, services, and commercial activities that result in new positions for individuals with low incomes. CED projects are expected to actively recruit individuals with low incomes to fill the positions created by CED-funded development activities, to assist those individuals in successfully maintaining employment, and to ensure that the businesses and jobs created remain viable for at least 1 year after the end of the grant period. CED-funded projects can be non-construction or construction projects; however, short-term construction jobs associated with preparing for business startup or expansion are not counted when determining the number of jobs created under the CED program as they are designed to be temporary.
