Welcome to Polk CDC
Since 1989, the mission of Polk Community Development has been to provide the low and moderate income residents of Polk County with opportunities for high-quality, affordable housing, supported by self-help programs that assist families and individuals in their efforts to achieve significant life goals.
Polk CDC is solely governed by a Board of Directors comprised of nine local residents. To learn more about Polk CDC and its history, visit the “Our Impact” section of the website.
In addition, Polk CDC also administers an affordable loan program in partnership with Polk County and local cities for qualified homeowners for home improvement loans, for rental properties serving qualified families and for business facade upgrade improvements.
Polk CDC works hard to:
- Develop and manage high-quality affordable rental housing for low and moderate income families, senior citizens and special needs populations.
- Provide low-interest housing rehabilitation loans to help low and moderate income homeowners make necessary home repairs.
- Help Polk County residents purchase their first homes and build other financial and personal assets by providing educational programs, credit and homebuyer counseling, Individual Development Accounts (IDAs), and other resources.
- Enrich the lives of its residents by providing resident services including tenant mediation, resource and referral, asset-building opportunities and youth programs.
