ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION:
The goal of Hyde
Park CDC is to stabilize and increase property values in the Hollywood
and Hyde Park community.
Hyde-Park Community Development Corporation (HPCDC) was established in 1990 by a concerned group of minority community members in order to address the needs of low and moderate-income families through employment and training opportunities in the construction trade. HPCDC has formed partnerships with banks, legislators, foundations, the City of Memphis, the State of Tennessee, and the federal government, all of which have played a significant role in making the HPCDC a viable undertaking.
It is the mission of HPCDC to identify emerging community needs and create innovative collaborations that align the quality of life to successfully meet those needs, with a focus towards construction and renovation of single and multi-family homes and providing first-time home ownership and/or rental for low-moderate income families in the HPCDC area.
In October 2001, the City of Memphis awarded HPCDC as a Community Housing
Development Organization (CHDO) designation. This designation by the
City of Memphis was in answer to the community cries of revitalization
for the area from the slum and blight it had deteriorated to.
