The Tower Grove Neighborhoods Community Development Corporation is a consolidation of Grand Oak Hill Community Corporation, Southwest Garden Housing Corporation and Shaw Neighborhood Housing Corporation. The three organizations have served the community for over 30 years.
Now, as a combined entity, TGNCDC continues the tradition and supports the area’s growth as a real estate-related community development corporation by promoting responsible development, affordable housing and diverse character and vibrancy in the neighborhoods surrounding Tower Grove Park. Through local development and community progress expertise, the Tower Grove Neighborhoods Community Development Corporation serves as a resource to neighborhood residents, buyers/renters, developers, real estate agents and business owners.
In addition to development, tenant screening, landlord training and work with energy efficiency, TGNCDC participates in steering committees, advises and facilitates infrastructure improvements including Shaw Blvd enhancements and a 1.2 million accessibility grant to improve access to Tower Grove Park. TGNCDC advises neighborhoods associations, developers and CIDs on the Neighborhood Ownership Model, best practices to address vacancy, nuisance statute lawsuits, creating neighborhood associations, tenant's rights, development incentives, Missouri Historic Tax Credits and other programs. We work closely with other community organizations and elected Alderpersons in our service area and hold open houses and neighborhood tours to draw interest to areas of focus.
Executive Director Sean Spencer is available to help answer all your community development related questions – from development incentives and details on available properties, tours of the neighborhoods, to tenant screening, nuisance property abatement, and Community Development Block Grant activities. Contact him at 314.865-5530 or firstname.lastname@example.org to see how TGNCDC can help you get connected to Shaw, Tower Grove South and Southwest Garden neighborhoods.
TGNCDC’s CDBG Neighborhood Improvement Program and related activities is financed wholly through a grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Community Development Administration under the provision of Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (Pub L, 93-383 42 USC 5301 et seq.) and/or HOME Title II of the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990, as amended (Public Law 101-625).
