Miami-Dade Empowerment Trust

The Miami-Dade Empowerment Trust, Inc., a non-profit organization, was established in February 1999, and delegated the authority to govern, direct and implement the Enterprise Zone Strategic Plan and to create and expand business opportunities in the Enterprise Zone. The premise of the Enterprise Zone program is that conditions of poverty can be overcome and a market economy can be built through new investment in economic opportunities for people. As a result, the activities of the Trust are geared toward developing a strategic vision that lead to creating economic opportunities and build sustainable communities.
