HISTORY:
Riverview-Kansas, CDC was started in 1997; the RKCDC became active in neighborhood association activities. Late 1998, into 1999, the organization decided to expand its role into that of becoming an active community development corporation. In exercising that decision, RKCDC sought assistance from the Memphis Community Development Partnership (MCDP) who responded with a grant for technical assistance. RKCDC received a Core Support grant for one year to hire an Executive Director, identify and secure financial support from additional funding sources, apply for CHDO designation, focus activities on developing affordable housing during the term of the contract, and develop detailed work plan and project timeline for single family housing development and other activities. RKCDC also qualified as a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) by the City of Memphis, and received a HOPE administrative grant from the City of Memphis in 2004.
