Mission of Brookline CDC The mission of the Brookline Community Development Corporation (Brookline CDC or BCDC) formerly called Brookline Improvement Coalition (BIC) is to increase access to safe affordable housing in Brookline through working in partnership, to increase economic security for Brookline’s low and moderate-income residents of Brookline and to create a more level playing field for all residents regardless of age, race, color, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ability, veteran’s status or income.
A Second Founding: The renewal and transformation of BCDC/Brookline CDC – The BCDC has been transformed over the last three years. A number of new board members joined the board with a greater sense of mission about the role of BCDC. At the same time, new resources have become available at the local level with a focus on community development by the Brookline Community Foundation (BCF), American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and Community Development Block Grants (CDBG). In the future HOME and the Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds will also be available. BCDC is using this increased funding to build its capacity, expand community engagement, contribute to the social safety net, and begin strategic improvements to conditions at its properties.
