Eureka Community Development Co.

The Eureka Community Development Co. is involved in economic and community development.  The mission of ECDC is to promote and demonstrate innovative grassroots economic development in the community, attract new industry, assist with expansion/retention of existing industries, and promote industrial and commercial development.

The mission of ECDC will be accomplished by: 

ECDC works with existing, new, and expanding businesses through loans from a revolving loan fund, business planning, business consultations, financial referrals, workforce development and marketing.  

Through grants from various sources, ECDC has been able to provide a free copy service to local organizations.  ECDC led efforts in 1999 and 2000 to have kuchen named as South Dakota’s official state dessert. Following that designation, Eureka had three retail businesses producing kuchen.
