The NCBA Housing Development Corporation (NCBA HDC) was established as a nonprofit subsidiary of the National Caucus & Center on Black Aging, Inc., one of the country's oldest and largest minority-focused organizations dedicated to issues impacting African Americans age 50 and older.


NCBA HDC has developed and/or co-developed independent senior housing properties in Washington, D.C.; Silver Spring, Maryland; Hernando, Mayersville, Marks and Jackson, Mississippi; Reidsvile, North Carolina; Tampa, Florida; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Atlanta, Georgia; and New Orleans, Louisiana.  We will continue to advocate for creative solutions to ensure safe, decent and affordable housing for all aging minorities.


All of us at NCBA HDC share an unwavering commitment to quality and pride in our work.  As NCBA HDC grows, we will continue to build upon our mission to change the way America thinks about aging.  After all, we are not just in the business of developing affordable senior properties; we're in the business of helping people maintain a quality of life.





We are passionately committed to improving the quality of life for low-income African Americans and minority seniors by providing affordable housing in a supportive environment promoting health, independence and social interactions.
