History of TCNDC

Organization History

Tulane/Canal Neighborhood Development Corporation was established in August 2000, by a group of individuals committed to working together to restore and beautify the neighborhood bound by St. Louis, Poydras, Broad Street and Claiborne Avenue. T/CNDC was created to help provide affordable housing opportunities for low-income families and individuals, as well as those threatened by homelessness. We became a 501(c)3 in 2001. In the following years, we rehabbed 2 houses for low income homeowners and 6 homes for seniors or persons with disabilities. Our first home was sold in 2007 and we have developed 15 homes since then. Our homeowners are grandparents, families with young children, families with children who have since become adults and young professionals. All of our homeowners are still proud to call Tulane Canal home today!
We have partnered closely with Lantern Light Ministries at St. Joseph’s Church, the Neighborhood Development Foundation (NDF), Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS), Rebuild Together and several other community organizations to make homeownership possible for our clients.
