Community Development Corporation Bentonville/Bella Vista, Inc.
Formed as a private, non-profit corporation in 1991, the Community Development Corporation (CDC) helps to provide transitional housing, family housing, and senior housing in Bentonville and Bella Vista, Arkansas. The CDC prides itself in developing and managing properties that are at the top of the market. The CDC’s “affordable” properties compare favorably with market rate properties throughout the community. The CDC has won three national awards for housing development, and was awarded the State’s first Open Door Award for Excellence in Affordable Housing. From its inception, the CDC has operated with an entrepreneurial philosophy, incorporating good business practices into its charitable activities. The CDC has been able to assist other non-profits in the community through land banking and pre-development activities. CDC is currently working with Northwest Arkansas Senior Services, Inc. and Bentonville Revitalization, Inc. on housing and downtown re-development projects.
