Neighborhood Characteristics, Community Development Corporations and the Community Development Industry System: A Case Study of the American Deep South.
Silverman, Robert Mark
Community Development Journal, v36 n3 p234-45 Jul 2001
Relationship between neighborhood characteristics and community development corporations (CDCs) was examined in Jackson, Mississippi. CDCs were more likely to be in neighborhoods with significant numbers of disenfranchised groups and disinvestment in the built environment. They act as subcontractors, which limits their power and mirrors structural inequalities they were intended to address. (Contains 23 references.) (SK)
