Lowell "Enterprise Community" Application
In 1994, the US departments of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Health and Human Services (HHS) designated 66 "Enterprise Communities" around the nation. Each one is receiving funding and technical assistance for community development efforts including business development, human services, job training and education.

The Keefe Company developed the strategy the City of Lowell used in its successful application for designation as an Enterprise Community, which has brought $3 million in federal aid to the city.

In 2002, Lowell's status as an Enterprise Community helped win it the additional designation as one of 40 new "Urban Renewal Communities," making Lowell residents and businesses eligible for a share of $17 billion in tax incentives to stimulate job growth, promote economic development, and create affordable housing.
