OPPORTUNITY abounds

Working together makes it happen

For more than 35 years, NEDCO has been building opportunities in our community. By supporting financial stability and responsible homeownership, providing access to markets for local farmers and food producers, creating unique programs for micro-businesses and fueling the renewed interest in downtown Springfield, NEDCO is helping people build a future with promise.

Learn more about what we do. We rely on our supporters to work alongside us to build these opportunities — visit the farmers’ market, buy local products at Sprout!, participate in our financial stability program as a student or a sponsor and help us spread the word.
