Greetings from the Chairman:

As Chairman of the Board, I welcome you to the Harlingen Community Development (HCDC) website. Founded in 1991, HCDC has had an ongoing partnership with the City of Harlingen to administer their HOME CHDO funds and other housing related programs. To date, HCDC has constructed 136 homes, created 15 units of rental housing, assisted 500 low-income families with energy conservation measures, and generated over $10,000,000 million in total private investment.

HCDC is fully committed to fair housing and to securing affordable housing for low-income households within the City of Harlingen and surrounding areas. Our agency’s ability to meet the changing housing needs of its target group is illustrated by the wide array of services offered, from housing counseling, down payment assistance and mortgage financing to energy conservation, to disaster related services, and assistance to persons with disabilities. All of this is made possible by HCDC’s capacity to attract both public and private financial support for the creative implementation of innovative affordable housing strategies. HCDC continues in its role as a catalyst in the creation of viable financial partnerships to maximize financial resources, increase housing production, and serve more low-income families.

HCDC is proud of its accomplishments and stands ready to serve the low-income families who are searching for the American dream or need safe, affordable, and energy efficient housing. We also thank our supporters for
making this possible. We look forward to visiting with you,


Ronnie Garcia, Chairman
