Organizational Overview

Since its founding, the Hill CDC has worked to improve the quality of life for Hill District residents by providing resident support, technical assistance, project facilitation, program design, and more to further the development of a strong, diverse, economically self-sustaining neighborhood. The Hill CDC has developed, partnered, and facilitated the development of over 1,000 residential units and over 20,000 square feet of commercial/retail space. The role of the Hill CDC is to act as a community partner, connector, and innovator. Meet traditional neighborhood needs, while transforming the way things are done. With the support of residents and by partnering with public agencies, the organization catalyzed development in a community stricken by disinvestment. The Hill CDC has played multiple roles, including community developer and partner to for-profit real estate developers who were seeking neighborhood support and a non-profit partner through which they can access tax credit programs. The Hill CDC focuses on Planning and Real Estate Development Initiatives, Organizational Programs, and Policy and Communication.

Additionally, the Hill CDC holds quarterly community meetings to keep the community up-to-date and ensure that community input is heard and incorporated into all relevant projects and proposals.
