How We Helped

The Neighborhood Community Development Fund (formerly known as the “Northside Community Development Fund”) provided acquisition and construction financing to the Brightwood Civic Group to redevelop 8 single-family homes along the Woodland Avenue corridor. Phase II is nearing completion. We also provided acquisition and predevelopment financing for another 5 houses to be started in 2020.
