The Business Of CDCs

While CDCs are focused on trying to revitalize neighborhoods, what makes them tick behind the scenes?

There are many questions that lurk in the background of the field as it matures:What can CDCs learn from stories of their colleagues' failure - from drastic shrinkage to collapse? Is it better to merge with another local CDC than continue competing for funding? If so, how do you do it in a way that is fair, effective, and preserves the best of both organizations? Why is collaboration so hard and what are the factors of success? A series of articles in this issue of Shelterforce takes on these questions in a searching look at the business of CDCs:http://www.nhi.org/online/issues/129/CDCfailures.htmlhttp://www.nhi.org/...
