Welcome to Northfield Community LDC’s Resource Center
This Resource Center was created to reduce the number of vacant mixed-use, commercial and residential properties in Port Richmond; encourage property owners to improve dilapidated and underutilized properties; and to help residents obtain and maintain fiscally sound housing. The services offered address a need in the community for more affordable housing options, increase residential density in the commercial corridor, and to address the vacant and underutilized properties in the community.
Through this initiative, we will help individual property owners address rehabilitation needs and return their vacant properties to good use. We also aim to promote investment opportunities to investors and developers.
Our staff is available to:
- research individual properties in need of rehabilitation
- identify mixed use properties which might accommodate the development of additional housing units
- identify obstacles to their development and create a plan to resolve such obstacles
As part of our efforts to encourage investment in the community, we are a resource to property owners in making improvements to their properties. We encourage owners to include energy and health and safety improvements into their rehabilitation plans and help property owners to access incentives and resources for such improvements as well as historic preservation incentives, where applicable, and affordable housing incentives. We will help property owners access resources of the Mayor’s Office of Environmental Remediation for properties that require environmental clean-up.
Northfield Community LDC will also work with individuals in the community to provide housing and financial literacy counseling, preparing them to secure stable rental apartment and/or prepare for home ownership.
