Starting a Business
The CLSMF Community Economic Development (CED) project addresses the economic and housing needs of low-income people and their families. Our goal is to revitalize communities by developing and rehabilitating affordable housing. By supporting low income housing, attorneys at CLSMF aim to promote sustainability, attract investments, encourage entrepreneurship, and create jobs.
Through its CED Unit, CLSMF provides legal assistance to small businesses serving low-to-moderate income communities, non-profits engaged in community development activities, and non-profit affordable housing developers.
CLSMF also partners with other legal services organizations in Florida as part of the Florida Community Development Legal Project (“FCDL”). Through this collaboration, the group is able to assist small businesses and non-profits across Florida.
