Creating Change in our Communities

Here at SCKEDD, we are a non-profit organization that brings together communities to advocate economic growth.

We work to improve the quality of life for those who live within our designated 14-county area. We take action by providing several grant and loan opportunities to programs that help us reach these goals. We’d be happy to talk with you about your project!
