At the NDC 50th Celebration, we proudly unveiled the first-ever Impact Look Book. Because we work behind the scenes on every aspect of economic development, it’s not always clear how our work affects the lives of real people! The Look Book features three uniquely impactful stories.

  • -A single father with two teenage sons finds an affordable home in a family-friendly neighborhood in Gallatin TN, where the average housing price has risen from $150,000 to $350,000 in the last decade.
  • -An immigrant family in Los Angeles built a $30M business staring with a single truck hauling construction waste.
  • -A historic community in Potomac, MD — founded by emancipated families in the late 1800s — is revitalized and preserved for generations to come
