The North Carolina Community Development Initiative leads North Carolina’s collaborative community economic development efforts, driving innovation, investment, and action to create prosperous, sustainable communities.

The Initiative was established in 1993 as a trusted intermediary to strategically assemble and invest funds in community development organizations across the state. We have grown and adapted our programs and strategies as the community development needs of our state have changed; however, our commitment to North Carolina  communities has remained constant throughout our history.

Our work with North Carolina communities involves strategic investment, smart policy, and sector leadership. Whether investing in our state’s most promising affordable housing developers, helping communities rebuild after hurricanes and other disasters, shaping state and local policy, supporting community revitalization driven by the needs of community members, or building a pipeline of future community development leaders, the Initiative is working to create thriving communities with opportunity for all.
