The National Association for County Community and Economic Development (NACCED) is excited to welcome Beam, formerly Edquity, as the latest member to join NACCED as a Platinum Associate member!
NACCED’s associate members provide valuable products and services within the affordable housing, community development and economic development industry. These members are established industry leaders, committed to promoting and enhancing the success of counties implementing the nation’s affordable housing and community development programs.
Beam’s configurable cloud-based platform increases equitable and fast delivery of critical financial assistance to our most vulnerable populations. Its technology allows governments, nonprofits, and philanthropic organizations to administer a wide range of programs, from rental relief and public utility benefits to workforce development incentives and disaster relief programs, with software that simplifies applications, aids decisioning and processing, facilitates payments, and streamlines compliance, reporting, and case management into a single system.
Beam currently provides digital infrastructure for 55 governments, higher education institutions, nonprofits, and philanthropic organizations in more than 16 states. Since 2020, Beam has administered over $200 million to 300,000 households.
“With billions of dollars in aid going unspent every year, we need to create systems that empower agencies to equitably and efficiently distribute benefits to those who need them most,” said David Helene, CEO and founder of Beam. “For many families, these programs are the difference between keeping the lights on and food on the table. We look forward to continuing our partnership with NACCED to provide resources, advocacy, and support to strengthen local communities and create sustainable, equitable communities that work for everyone.”
