MCCD is an association of nonprofit community development organizations committed to expanding the wealth and resources of neighborhoods through housing and economic development initiatives. For close to thirty years, MCCD members have worked together to increase opportunities for the development of quality, community-based projects through collaborative action on public policy issues, loan fund development, public education efforts, and long-term strategic planning. Through these efforts, the organization has demonstrated the effectiveness and efficiencies gained by a shared vision of cooperation.
MCCD’s strength originates from its diverse membership, which includes organizations specializing in the development of high quality affordable housing, small business development, and workforce development. While the members may work with separate facets of community development, all members seek to direct economic and social resources towards underserved communities. MCCD’s staff help facilitate cooperation and communication among all of its members and advocate on behalf of their work.
MCCD’s origins extend back to 1982, when a group of eight non-profit developers met to discuss their common issues and concerns. The regular meetings that followed led the group to develop a strategy that ultimately produced over a thousand low- and moderate-income housing units in Minneapolis. The group also focused on public education efforts and encouraged program collaboration among members. In 1989, the group, which had grown to eleven members, incorporated the Minneapolis Consortium of Nonprofit Developers as a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation. In 1993, the name was changed to the Minneapolis Consortium of Community Developers (MCCD). Today, MCCD’s membership, with 48 members, is committed to increasing opportunities for the development of quality, community-based projects through collaborative action on public policy issues, loan fund development, public education efforts, and long-term strategic planning. Through these efforts, MCCD has been able to demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiencies gained by a shared vision and cooperation.
