NKCDC draws on the strengths of the community to empower residents and promote resident-driven development. While strategies have shifted over the years, NKCDC has developed a multi-faceted approach to neighborhood revitalization. As just one of a team of players in the Fishtown, Kensington, and Port Richmond communities, this approach has had a positive impact on neighborhood development.
Each year NKCDC serves more than 30,000 low and moderate income families and 60,000 residents. Through a combination of economic development, real estate development, land use management, housing counseling, and community engagement, NKCDC seeks to serve as a catalyst to strengthen the physical, social, and economic fabric of the community.
Since NKCDC has taken great strides to further its commitment to foster a vibrant, green, and sustainable neighborhood, the organization is working alongside residents and partners to create the greenest neighborhood in Philadelphia.
The achievements highlighted in the Sustainable 19125 & 19134 section showcases NKCDC and the community’s work. It is through this neighborhood-based initiative that NKCDC continues to strive in achieving its goal to promote sustainable development and community building within its neighborhoods.
