Certified Regional Development Corporations

The Montana Department of Commerce manages the Certified Regional Development Corporations (CRDC) program as an effort to encourage a regional approach to economic development. CRDCs can assist businesses with grant and loan applications as well as providing a variety of technical assistance programs. The Department of Commerce website maintains a list of the current CRDCs along with a map illustrating the areas they cover. Click on the region to go the local CRDC's webpage.
