Hyde Park Community Development Corporation, a 501 (c) (3) organization, is a nonprofit corporation whose mission is to:

  • Develop affordable single family housing for sale and rental in the Hollywood and Hyde Park community

  • Provide economic opportunity through home ownership and secure rental options, commercial stabilization, and greater economic developmen.
  • Perform those functions that enhance the quality of life and foster a sense of community in the Hollywood and Hyde Park community


The goal of Hyde Park CDC is to stabilize and increase property values in the Hollywood and Hyde Park community.


  • Build quality, affordable low to moderate-income single family housing for sale and rental
  • Perform renovations on eligible housing stock; promote home improvement and regular maintenance on the remaining housing stock
  • Minimize the number of abandoned, dilapidated, and vacant homes
  • Create an environment whereby the Hollywood and Hyde Park community are “neighborhoods of choice”
  • Reduce foreclosure
  • Minimize the number of vacant lots
  • Provide financial and home ownership counseling



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.
The capacity funds have assisted in hiring staff for the CDC and providing training in the area of housing development, board development, and financial management. We look forward to providing affordable housing, community service projects, safety, crime prevention, and business & economic development opportunities to our community.
