Our Mission


Whether constructing buildings or strengthening families, the Urban Enterprise Association has been a partner with the City of Hammond for many productive years. Improving the quality of life for Hammond’s zone residents has been a priority for the UEA. Beautifying neighborhoods, funding educational and social activities providing grant opportunities, and stimulating the city’s capital investments are all hallmarks of the Urban Enterprise Association’s definition. Without a doubt, the Enterprise Zone increases employment opportunities, reduces poverty, and furnishes Incentives that compliment zone businesses which ultimately makes Hammond a better place to live, work, and grow.
