New Community Development Programs:
Nehemiah Project Community Development Corporation (NPCDC) provides a range of economic, community development, health, education and housing rehabilitation services to meet the needs of Fulton County’s below moderate income individuals and families. The NPCDC strives to serve as a catalyst for the revitalization of Fulton County’s most distressed neighborhoods. With this as a beginning premise, the NPCDC ventures beyond traditional models of community development and into an innovative model that centers on revitalization with a holistic and empowering approach. To accomplish this objective, the NPCDC seeks to employ the following programs detailing the NPCDC’s Community Development Strategy:
Our Neighborhood Revitalization Program will support affordable, rental and for sale housing in Fulton County. The NPCDC goal is to incorporate for-sale housing products, including first-time home buyer single and multi-family housing, mixed-income and mixed-use developments.
Similarly, our commercial real estate development strategy extends not only to small business development but to the redevelopment of strategic parcels into state-of-the-art office, retail, and industrial developments.
The NPCDC creates momentum that assists people in making healthy choices where they live, learn, work, and play through sustainable changes that address the major risk factors–tobacco, physical inactivity, and unhealthy eating.
The purpose of the program is to improve the community’s economic capacity by utilizing strategies that increase employment and income and provide access to a highly trained local workforce for area businesses. Our Financial Literacy workshops strive to build financial awareness, provide education for establishing financial goals, and empower the individual to adopt new strategies to achieve those goals.
Advocacy/Awareness and Education:
NPCDC educates and creates awareness among community leaders and the general public regarding issues that our targeted community population often faces. NPCDC does not endorse or oppose specific legislation, but rather, informs the community at large how public policy decisions impact service provision. Specific activities include, but are not limited to, providing technical assistance or advice to a local official on the community development needs of low-income residents of Fulton County and making available to the community nonpartisan analysis, study and research.
