Community Development Corporation

In neighborhoods like Park Manor and Rivera Beach Heights, the Riviera Beach Community Development Corporation (RBCDC) is providing struggling families with assistance to build new homes, and identifying grants to help others improve their property. Created by the Riviera Beach CRA in 2012, the goal of the RBCDC is to improve and redevelopment neighborhoods in the CRA District. The CRA is positioning the RBCDC to become one of Palm Beach County’s most outstanding non-profit redevelopers.

Among the services offered by the CDC:

Building new homes

The Riviera Beach Renaissance program leverages more than $1 million in grants provided by Palm Beach County to build affordable housing for qualified families on vacant lots in Park Manor and Riviera Beach Heights.

 

Helping neighbors

The RBCDC launched the House by House program, coordinating home improvements for residents in need, getting neighbors involved in their community, and recruiting volunteers and businesses to take an active role in improving neighborhoods.

 

Helping charities

The CDC can assist non-profits and community groups with building the knowledge, resources and relationships they need in order to be more effective and more impactful to the community.

 

Veteran programs

The Veteran Home Ownership Preservation Program, funded by Palm Beach County and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, assists qualified military veterans and spouses of deceased veterans with up to $100,000 for the purchase and repair of homes in the CRA District.
