From its beginnings in 1983, Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation (CHLDC) adopted a comprehensive approach to neighborhood building: preserving the housing stock, supporting economic development and investing in the people by offering educational, creative, recreational and leadership development opportunities throughout the area. CHLDC serves 8,000 residents a year through a comprehensive array of community service programs and neighborhood development projects. Under the previous strategic plan, CHLDC was a core grantee for New York. Hazen’s $30,000 grant in 2010 will enable it to maintain its strong local organizing and continue to play a leadership role in citywide organizing.
