We have obtained over $100 million from Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Economic Development Administration (EDA), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Workforce Training, private sector, banking institutions, and other sources, on behalf of our clients. CDS provides in-depth technical assistance to small and mid-sized businesses in the areas of cash flow management, personnel development, business expansion management, market analysis, customer service, and product/services development.

Our team also provides project coordination and liaison services between public and private entities, project feasibility analysis, presentations to communities, strategy development, staff training, and program administration services. What we like best is accessing financing for our clients.
