Business Assistance

Public Housing and Community Development (PHCD) provides core economic development programs that are designed to serve as a catalyst in spurring new private sector investment and job creation in communities struggling to secure the benefits of the new economy. PHCD programs support sustainable economic development strategies that leverage investments from other public and private sources in order to ensure the long-term viability of local business community.

PHCD views economic development as a means to an end, working to achieve demonstrable results through the strategic investment of federal economic development resources. PHCD promotes economic development with the goal of creating and retaining jobs for low- to moderate-income persons.

Some areas within Miami-Dade County have been designated as having economic development property. The interactive Economic Incentives Map helps identify those areas.

Other types of assistance are available through a variety of providers. Programs range from mom-and-pop grants to Enterprise Zones. Read about more types of business incentives.
