Targeted Urban Areas

Miami-Dade County identified 17 underserved communities that require combined efforts for economic improvement. These Targeted Urban Areas (TUAs) are MDEAT's focus for heightening the awareness of critical issues that impact the economic vitality of these predominately Black communities. By addressing key factors which affect the disparities between the TUAs and the community-at-large, MDEAT's Economic Development Action Committee (EDAC) develops and advocates initiatives to educate and train both individuals and businesses for economic success.

In Fiscal Year 2016-17, MDEAT worked to establish healthy and safer TUA communities through educational opportunities and support of small businesses. By concentrating on these key determinants within TUAs, the EDAC provided technical resources and advocacy to address job and business creation and workforce training.
