CPDC Announces Chartered Membership with NeighborWorks
CPDC builds vibrant communities through innovation and partnerships. For more than 25 years, our mission has been dedicated to the long-term success of our residents, partners, and the affordable housing industry. Today, we are happy to announce this mission focus has paid off with our newest partnership with NeighborWorks.
NeighborWorks, a national nonprofit organization, created by Congress in 1978, provides financial support, technical assistance, and training for community-based revitalization efforts. For 35 years, NeighborWorks America has created opportunities for people to improve their lives and strengthen their communities by providing access to homeownership in safe and affordable rental housing. In the last five years, NeighborWorks organizations have generated more than $19.5 billion in reinvestment in these communities. NeighborWorks America is the nation’s leading trainer in community development and affordable housing professionals.
As a NeighborWorks chartered member, CPDC is now one of more than 240 NeighborWorks organizations in nearly 4,000 urban, suburban, and rural communities nationwide. CPDC’s link to this powerful and unique nationwide network of community development organizations adds great value to programs and communities. Additionally, CPDC earned certification by meeting a high standard of fiscal integrity and service performance in assisting residents to develop leadership, improve their neighborhoods, and secure affordable housing.
Through our relationship with NeighborWorks, CPDC can access financial resources, tools, training opportunities, and the experience of hundreds of colleagues from around the country to help our communities grow and thrive.
