Community/Commercial Development

A community’s strength can be found in the organizations that cultivate resources, the businesses that employ and engage, and the citizens who call it home.

NDS works to help you build your community’s strength and achieve your vision.

As a full-service community development catalyst, NDS facilitates strong community relationships, supports resident-driven groups, and develops socially-conscious businesses to drive communities toward a vibrant future.

NDS’s services include housing rehabilitation, homebuyer education, downtown revitalization, economic development, financing and job creation, revolving loan fund administration, project administration, grant implementation, and real estate development.

Economic Development Lending

NDS provides loans for new or existing businesses who create or retain jobs. We take the time to look at each project at an individual level, ensuring the best plan for your business. NDS has the capacity to independently provide up to 45% of the financing needs for your project, and up to 90% in partnership with a primary lender. Because NDS has access to various funding sources, our underwriting can be tailored to fit unique opportunities.

NDS has helped to create over 1,300 jobs by assisting businesses start or expand using various funding sources such as: the USDA, Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), and NeighborWorks America funding.
