Thank you for your patience during this time. Ms. Britteny Cioni-Haywood Division Director The Division of Economic Development (DED) supports the growth and diversification of Alaska’s economy through business assistance, financing, promotion, and public policy. The division works closely with industry leaders, allied agencies, and economic development organizations across the state, including the 10 state designated Alaska Regional Development Organizations. Critical to the growth of Alaska’s economy is DED’s support of Alaska’s small businesses through technical assistance and the promotion of Alaska’s manufacturing sector through the Made in Alaska and Alaska Product Preference programs. Equally critical is the provision of capital to businesses that would not otherwise qualify for private-sector lending. DED currently administers 10 revolving loan funds broadly serving Alaska’s small businesses with total assets approaching $200 million. Showcasing Alaska’s abundant economic opportunity found in its natural resources, human capital, and emerging industries, DED actively promotes Alaska’s business climate via its Alaska: North to Opportunity campaign. The division manages the contract for the State of Alaska's tourism marketing program that promotes Alaska as a visitor destination across the globe and plays a fundamental role in attracting the nearly two million visitors who travel to Alaska each year. Investments Section The Investments Section administers loan programs designed to promote Alaska industries. Development Section The Development Section provides specialized assistance to Alaska industries. What's New at the DED?
