The People We Serve
No one is more motivated or better equipped to foster skill development and economic independence than the person whose life and future is at stake. And no one is smarter about bringing about the transformative change and economic development support than the nation whose communities and people will benefit from such incentives.
At FERAD, our role is to help catalyze the economic advancement and shared prosperity that communities aspire to. It is their potential, their energy, and their ideas that ultimately serve to overcome the challenges they alone face. Our job is to research, develop and make available new and improved resources that will ultimately inspire innovation and drive venture creation, growth and sustainability.
