The Leader for Economic Development Initiatives in East Greensboro
What is a community development corporation? It is a group of people working as advocates for their local community to bring about economic restoration and revitalization. East Greensboro NOW does this through many areas of focus. We create and facilitate partnerships, aid in the development of commercial property and housing, advocate and participate in neighborhood development, train entrepreneurs and support business development, and take the lead in maintaining the integrity of the City’s development plan for east Greensboro.
We seek to “Nurture Opportunities and Wealth” in east Greensboro, for today and the future.
What we Do
We build partnerships with our community members and leaders to address housing issues, promote events and programs, and beautify neighborhoods in need of improvement.
We work with both new and established minority entrepreneurs to educate, counsel, and support them in developing and growing their businesses.
We spur economic progress through various means such as creating community programs, promoting existing businesses, and acquiring and rehabilitating personal and business properties.
Our goal is to add quality, affordable housing units, both rental and for sale (homeownership), that will improve overall property values in east Greensboro. A stated goal from the City of Greensboro’s Connections 2025 Comprehensive Plan is, “Meet the needs of present and future Greensboro citizens for a choice of decent, affordable housing in stable, livable neighborhoods that offer security, quality of life, and the necessary array of services and facilities.”
