The Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation initiatives, endeavors, programs, and incentives revolve around the human capital that’s within our community.

Collaborating on Economic Development Projects

From our ongoing ‘Border and Sea’ Campaign to sponsoring signature events, we provide a wide array of resources, incentives, and programming suited to the needs of our community, entrepreneurs, and businesses of all sizes. If you require resources or assistance that we do not have featured, please do not hesitate to contact us – we love finding innovative ways to help our community in any way we can.

By providing a resource hub like the eBridge Center to Brownsville’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, the BCIC strives to make the support entrepreneurs need easily accessible.
