25th Annual Report
In May 1992, Corporation to Develop Communities of Tampa, Inc.
(CDC of Tampa) was founded by civic and community leaders--led by Ms. Chloe Coney--
to alleviate poverty and physical deterioration within a 'community of neighborhoods'
four miles northeast of downtown Tampa, Florida known as East Tampa.
In the 25 years since, CDC of Tampa has become a leader in deploying comprehensive
community development strategies that connect workforce development, housing and
real estate with education, community safety and resident leadership to drive economic prosperity
in neighborhoods across Tampa, Hillsborough County and beyond.
Over the next 25 years, we envision a future where economic successes become everyday occurrences;
a future in which individuals, families and entire neighborhoods become more prosperous;
in short, we envision a future in which every year is marked by 365 "WINS"
across a thriving and diverse Tampa Bay region.
