NDC believes that residents, small businesses and neighborhoodMeets Standards groups in all communities have the talent, energy and ability to engage and revitalize their own communities.

NDC is celebrating 20 years of community revitalization.  Since May of 1993—in eight ethnic communities and 25 low-income neighborhoods in Minnesota—NDC has helped build community support around the idea of creating, financing, and supporting resident-owned small businesses as a means of revitalizing inner city neighborhoods. There are more than 450 NDC-assisted businesses currently in operation. These businesses are building neighborhood economies--from within.
