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.
