About Us

The Crawford County Development Association is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization here to strengthen the communities of Crawford County, Illinois by encouraging local leadership, community development, and economic opportunity.

We currently administer a community development grant designed to encourage entrepreneurship and job growth amongst local business and industry, and as part of our broader objective to increase the viability of new local businesses, we offer free counseling to business start-ups.

Our organization also runs an annual yearlong leadership institute for fifteen local professionals called Leadership Crawford County and partners with Lincoln Trail College to promote a better more employable local workforce.

In short, the CCDA sits at the intersection of commerce, industry, charity and government and works with all these groups to promote a higher quality of life for the people of Crawford County.
