Description

Tenants Development Corporation, Inc. (TDC) prides itself on being one of the oldest grassroots, community-based organizations in the country dedicated to defending the right to quality, affordable housing for people of diverse races and cultures as well as promoting tenant empowerment through active tenant participation in leadership and management of TDC. TDC was conceived and organized by low income renters, principally African-American tenants, who were distressed over the sub-standard and hazardous housing conditions to which they were subjected to live in many areas of the South End.

In 1968, TDC became the first community organization in the nation to be named developer of a housing develop­ment project holding mortgage insurance through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). TDC has been operating for over 49 years, developing affordable housing in Boston’s historic South End neighborhood. Since that time the organization has been active in housing rehabilita­tion and management. TDC is particularly proud to have restored the building at 397 Massachusetts Avenue where The Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. lived during the early years of his doctoral studies at the Boston University's School of Theology.
