Since 1991, Harlingen Community Development Corporation has had an ongoing partnership with the City of Harlingen to administer their HOME CHDO funds. To date, HCDC has constructed 136 homes for low income families and generated over $10,000,000 million in total private investment.
In 2007, HCDC assisted Cameron County with the implementation of HOME Program Contract No. 1000217. This program called for the rehabilitation of 17 single family owner occupied housing units in the areas of San Benito (Green Valley Subdivision), and in Olmito. HCDC completed the re-evaluation of homeowner applications and project set-ups within 60 days, and completed all rehabilitation activities within 90 days.
In 2005, HCDC successfully completed Northstar Apartments, a 72 unit multi-family rental housing development in Raymondville, TX, through TDHCA’s Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program. This new apartment community (four plexes) targets 85 percent of its tenants with incomes less than 60% of area median, and 15 percent of its tenants with incomes above 80% of area median.
