Welcome to the Laredo College Economic Development Center (LCEDC)


EDC Logo

Located within Laredo College, the International Trade Institute of the Americas (ITIA) was funded by a special state legislative appropriation in 1994. In 2008, ITIA was rebranded and today is recognized as the Laredo College Economic Development Center (LC EDC). Ongoing projects through LC EDC include Texas Workforce Commission programs such as Skills Development Fund Grants, Skills for Small Business Grants and TWC Special COVID-19 funding. In addition, the LC EDC provides Six Sigma Greenbelt Certification, Customs Specialist and Export Specialist Certifications in partnership with the National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association of America, with several other projects (i.e., events planning, grants awaiting notification) which are also underway.
