“The mission of the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) is to foster opportunities for business to grow and for communities to succeed and thrive in a global economy.”

Team PA works very closely with DCED on a regular basis. Honorable Dennis Davin, Secretary of the DCED, is an ex-officio member of our Executive and Resource Allocation Committees as well as a Member at Large on our Board of Directors. Additionally, Lindsay Helsel, Director of International Initiatives, is a Team PA staff member working on behalf of DCED and their Office of International Business Development.

DCED, like Team PA, is committed to transparency and accountability in the spending of public dollars. Team PA’s partnership with DCED allows private loan fees secured through DCED’s EB-5 program to be kept at a secure account at Team PA to support DCED initiatives.
