Business & Economic Development CenterBEDC
The BEDC works with individuals and businesses to help them improve their credit through
an analysis of their current credit issues and then developing an action plan to correct
those issues. We access your tri-merge credit report with FICO scores from all three
credit bureaus. The report is a “soft pull” for educational purposes, so it does not
lower your credit score. There is a $25 fee per credit report, we accept cash or check.
If you have a recent credit report, bring it and there will be no cost.
To schedule your free credit counseling, print the BEDC intake form below, complete it, and return it to the BEDC or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our counselors can help you identify any issues that prevent you from qualifying for a home and create a workable plan to correct those issues. We also provide guidance in home budgeting and homeownership readiness. If you would like the BEDC to access a soft pull credit report that does not lower your credit score like a hard pull from a creditor. There is a $25 fee per person for your credit report. If you have a recent credit report, bring it and there will be no cost.
