Who We Are and What We Do


We believe that in order to contribute to the development of thriving communities, we have a shared responsibility to foster and nurture programs and projects that embrace the principles and stewardship of our social, economic, and natural environments.

The organization is a 501c3 corporation governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, representative of local governments, business sectors and citizens throughout Lake County. As a state-certified regional development corporation serving Lake, Mineral and Sanders counties, and the Flathead Indian Reservation, we are further guided by an Advisory Board made up of local development corporations as well as other community organizations throughout the region.

Lake County Community Development cultivates economic growth in western Montana by offering unique resources to develop community, business and food and agriculture enterprises. We serve entrepreneurs and local businesses.

Through our Business Development Center, LCCDC collaborates with partners to provide businesses with technical assistance, education, and financial support related to planning,  management, marketing, government contracting, accounting, and food processing.

Through our Mission Mountain Food Enterprise Center, we provide Montana's only inspected food hub, providing resources to food and agriculture businesses including regulatory expertise, business planning assistance, food production, and storage infrastructure.
