For some, economic development simply means successful commercial enterprise; for others, development is measured by economic equality. The Neighborhood Recovery Community Development Corporation understands the importance of sustaining and improving the community and is committed to assisting the south central Houston area.
Houston, like many U.S. cities has faced some of the most critical economic development problems of urban areas, urban sprawl and gentrification. But the 21st century brought renewed interest in city’s metropolitan area. In the past decade, the public sector has invested more than $8 billion in “the Inner Loop.” As businesses and families move into the area, the NRCDC is working to ensure that affordable homes and new business opportunities and services are available to residents.
The community development organization is working with a broad array of corporate and community partners to generate community investment through the development of small and medium-sized businesses. NRCDC is currently seeking investments and financing for retail and commercial properties to develop new business enterprises and promote job growth. The community has already begun to see signs of success with a diverse mix of small retailers and budding entrepreneurs. Together these enterprises employ more than 375 people in the south central Houston community.
