About Us

Riverview Kansas CDC  was started in 1997.  The organization  quickly became active in neighborhood association activities.  Late 1998 into 1999, the organization decided  to expand its role and become an active community development corporation.  In exercising that decision, RKCDC sought  assistance from the Memphis Community Development Partnership (MCDP) who  responded with a grant for technical assistance.  In October 2001, Riverview-Kansas became a  designated Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) through the City  of Memphis.  In our effort, to continue to  make an impact on this community; we have continued to pursue additional  funding through partnership with the City of Memphis-HCD, Human Services  Department, Seedco and Memphis  Community Partnership Development.  RKCDC  has been awarded over $ 700,000 in the last 3 years through grants and loans to provide affordable housing, minor  home repairs for senior citizens, for neighborhood signs in the community and  clean initiatives for improvement of the street escape in the community.
