Initiatives

ASSURING A DIVERSE ECONOMY & AN ENHANCED QUALITY OF LIFE

At EDCKC, we’re the organization that focuses on implementing tools and programs that fuel our economy and grow our city. As with any great city, there are many ongoing initiatives and programs, so at times it can feel a bit overwhelming. To make it simple, we have a clear focus on three areas of growth: Growing Human Capital, Growing Business Capacity and Growing City Prosperity

In addition to the initiatives below, EDCKC was a founding member, is an ongoing supporter, and has awarded $1.5M in grant money to Launch KC.
