Pueblo County Community Development Corp (PCCDC)
The PCCDC board was created to oversee the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) business loan fund managed by the Pueblo County Government. The fund provides gap financing assistance to new business and existing business expansions with the aim of creating jobs and improving economic conditions. There are federal program requirements that need to be met.
The board consists of seven (7) members who serve without compensation with appointed two (2) year terms. All members are appointed by the Pueblo County Commissioners.
Board member responsibilities
- The board’s primary responsibility is to review loan applications and make funding decisions based on them.
- The board works closely with Southern Colorado Economic Development District (SCEDD) and Pueblo County personnel to ensure that program requirements are met.
- The board makes policy decisions for the program.
- The board monitors the existing loan portfolio through staff reports.
The board meets on the second Tuesday of each month, as needed, 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. At times, special meetings may be called to deal with issues where time is of the essence.
The board strives for diversity and welcomes all applicants but gives priority to members from the banking community, small business owners, accountants and economic development professionals.
