What Is NEDCO?

NEDCO is a certified Community Development Financial Institution. Since 1997, NEDCO has provided business loans, placemaking and financial support for low and moderate income individuals. NEDCO collaborates and partners with local municipalities, businesses, developers and other institutions to meet community development goals in the metro area.

Apache Spice Trail Program

NEDCO's Apache Spice Trail Program is intended to recognize and support local restaurants that contribute to the community. Each of these unique businesses offer delicious and diverse food, hire talented teams of local employees, give back to our community, and make their mark on the historic Apache Trail corridor in Tempe and Mesa. We salute these quality establishments and invite you to travel the Apache Spice Trail!
