Community and Business Development, LLC (CBD)

Community & Business Development LLC (CBD) is a for-profit Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) dedicated to Expanding Business Opportunities for Women and Minority Businesses (WBE/MBE)

At CBD we believe that every person deserves the opportunity to live in safe, decent and affordable housing. Our programs target the housing needs of low-income families and other under-served populations who do not have acceptable housing options through conventional financial channels. All CBD programs and services are currently offered in 5 states: Georgia, Louisiana, Florida, Tennessee, and Texas. Our allocation priority is given to areas identified by the Government by each updated Census as areas where 70 percent of the families who earn an income is 80 percent or less than the statewide median income.
