The Corry Community Development Corporation is dedicated to taking a leadership role to facilitate the identification of resources and linking them to the CorryVision plan and other strategic community initiatives. In that capacity, the CCDC will become: a funding pass-through mechanism by writing grants for community projects; an information clearinghouse and plan status reporting mechanism; an administrator of key smaller projects where no implementation group exists.
