Planning & Development

As one of the nation's largest nonprofit affordable housing developers, National CORE has developed more than 120 properties nationwide.

National CORE has built a reputation for taking on the toughest projects under the toughest of circumstances. Working closely with local governments, the business community, residents, neighbors and other stakeholders, we’ve developed nationally recognized showcase properties that exemplify the best of what communities can achieve.

Each project presents unique challenges and opportunities. But through our collaboration and our commitment, our stringent management practices and our expertise in transforming communities, we’ve seen entire neighborhoods come back from the ruin of crime, gangs, drugs and blight. We’ve helped hard-working families join in this transformation, moving from dependency to prosperity in communities they can at last proudly call their own.
