The Central County Community Development Corporation (CCCDC) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Urban League of Broward County (ULBC), Inc. CCCDC was created to acquire, develop, sponsor, purchase and rehabilitate deteriorating and/or substandard housing for subsequent sale and/or rental at affordable prices to residents of low and moderate incomes. CCCDC has been certified by the Florida Housing Finance Corporation as a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) since May 2001. CCCDC has been certified as a CHDO by Broward County since March 2009.
The subsidiary has developed single-family homes in the Broward Estates and Washington Part neighborhoods of Central Broward County. ULBC and CCCDC also helped create a coalition of non-profit affordable housing developers called the Broward Alliance for Neighborhood Development (BAND). The premise of the coalition was to “BAND” together to leverage resources and talent that could translate into a competitive advantage when seeking funding. The goal was to develop a non-profit developer clearinghouse that would develop systemic solutions for the lack of quality, sustainable affordable housing in Broward County. BAND’s first engagement by a municipal funder was the “Hollywood Revitalization Project”. The project entailed new single-family home construction in lots acquired by the City of Hollywood.
CCCDC currently owns eight (8) single-family homes which it rents as affordable homes to individuals at or below poverty guidelines established by Broward County. One of those homes was built with CCCDC funds, one property was donated by JP Morgan Chase and six homes were deeded to the CCCDC by the City of Plantation, Florida.
The other participating nonprofit agencies are:
1. Broward Alliance for Neighborhood Development (BAND)
2. Dania Economic Development Corporation
3. Habitat for Humanity of Broward
4. Housing, Opportunities, Mortgage Assistance and Effective Neighborhood Solutions, Inc. (HOMES)
5. Housing Foundation of America
6. Liberia Economic and Social Development
7. Minority Builders Coalition, Inc.
8. Neighborhood Housing Services of South Florida, Inc.
9. Sunrise City Community Housing Development Organization, Inc.
The Urban League's new homes will be unveiled during a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Saturday, June 30, 2018.
