CEDF (1997: 1) believes that it can be overwhelming for groups to find "the amount of time, energy, commitment, and funds required" and so CEDF works with selected organizations so they "will not be denied access to justice on the basis of cost alone.
CEDF chooses cases to support based on "the importance of the legal matter, ecological impact, and (the applicant group's) needs" (Mausberg, 1998a).
CEDF undertook fundraising and media campaigns to support the legal challenge.
CEDF is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing national assistance programs to support learning, teaching and improving the educational environment.
Over the next two years, CEDF plans to use the Dell grant to build 50 learning classrooms deploying ICT programs that will help with student-centric, project-driven, explorative and collaborative learning models.
We are grateful to our investor banks and the state which has made it possible for us to lend this money," said CEDF President and CEO Donna Wertenbach.
Since 1994, CEDF has helped create thousands of jobs by providing money, training and support to small businesses.
CEDF, with the Department of Economic and Community Development and cities of Hartford, Stamford, Bridgeport and West Haven, created the program to mitigate the risk of eligible small businesses.
The guarantee programs with our partners enhance CEDF's ability to support small business, particularly start-up or at-risk business and those with little or no collateral," says Donna Wertenbach, CEDF President and CEO.
B&W PGG will continue with oxy-coal combustion research at the CEDF
through the second quarter of 2008, next testing sub-bituminous, lignite and Powder River Basin coals.
The CEDF will be used to validate a technology called "oxy-coal combustion" that utilizes pure oxygen for the combustion of coal in electricity generating plants.
B&W will work with American Air Liquide to modify the existing CEDF facility for the oxy-coal process and will begin proving the technology in June 2007.
