In New York City, Community Development Corporations (CDCs) are not-for-profits that work to address problems of social, economic, and physical distress in the low and moderate-income communities in which they are based. Their fundamental mission is to build community leadership and empower low-income people to take charge of their future. Deutsche Bank is the first leading global investment bank to support by providing a matching grant to stimulate green projects at NYC CDCs. CDCs bring a comprehensive point of view to neighborhood development, and in many neighborhoods, they are playing a leading role engaging their constituents in local environmental issues.
