The Nelson County Community Development Foundation (NCCDF)

The Nelson County Community Development Foundation (NCCDF) was organized in 1985 "to foster and promote community development that primarily benefits low- and moderate-income citizens of Nelson County, providing funds, personnel and other assistance for the development of housing, health, water and wastewater facilities, education, recreation and economic development."

The NCCDF provides housing services through many programs, including First Time Homeowners, Indoor Plumbing and Owner-occupied Rehabs, Emergency Repairs for Elderly and Disabled and a Revolving Loan Program for a variety of purposes. NCCDF purchased its first Rent-to-Own Home in 1999, and plans to develop 10 additional rental properties in the next five years.


The foundation's first project was a 34-home subdivision for working poor families that received state and federal awards of excellence. Since 1985, the foundation has built 70 homes and rehabilitated 105 homes, or the equivalent of 3% of the occupied housing in our county. In addition, the foundation administers Housing Choice Vouchers for 44 families in Nelson.

In addition to our housing services, the NCCDF is also partnered with The Jefferson Area Board for Aging to restore a 1932 high school into the Nelson Center, a $2.4 million project that will provide intergenerational day care, recreation, physical health services, adult learning and community meeting facilities. We are also teamed with JABA on the conversion of another old elementary school into 31 independent living apartments for low-income seniors.
