The Northeast Louisiana Business and Community Development Center (NLBCDC) originated in 2009 through receipt of federal grants from the Small Business Administration. The center is located on the campus of the University of Louisiana at Monroe and is affiliated with the College of Business Administration. Activities and programs offered through the center promote the economic development potential of the Delta region.
The NLBCDC offers business owners resources and services designed to support and sustain a successful business. The small business incubator provides facilities and administrative assistance to fledgling companies thus allowing them to focus on the development or expansion of their business. Training and opportunities that directly impact the quality of life and stimulate economic growth are offered in communities comprising the targeted region.
