Founded in 1979, Alaska Community Development Corporation (Alaska CDC) is a non-profit corporation dedicated to improving the lives of Alaskans by working with communities, individuals, and other organizations. Our mission is to educate and assist low- and moderate-income Alaskans in the acquisition, energy conservation and the retrofitting of their affordable housing.
Since inception, Alaska CDC has managed the expenditure of over $150 million. Alaska CDC has completed weatherization on more than 11,700 low-income homes and 560 Public Housing units; rehabilitated over 320 low-income homes; made accessibility improvement to the homes of over 600 Seniors and Mental Health Trust beneficiaries; and provided technical assistance and oversaw the construction on 98 new homes for low-income families in the Mat-Su Borough under the USDA Mutual Self-Help Housing Program. Alaska CDC has also assisted over 450 low and very low-income homebuyers with home purchase through the HOME Opportunity Program homebuyer assistance.
Alaska CDC works in cooperation with, and/or receives funding from Alaska Housing Finance Corporation; the State of Alaska; U.S. Department of Energy; the Low-Income Home Heating Program; U.S. Department of Agriculture; and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. We also work with local community governments, tribal organizations, and other community support and service organizations.

Alaska CDC’s office is located in Palmer and we provide the following low-income housing assistance programs: Low-Income Weatherization Assistance; Senior Accessibility Modifications; Mental Health Trust Housing Accessibility Modifications; USDA Mutual Self-Help Housing; Home Opportunity Program—Homebuyer Assistance; and USDA Rural Development 502 home loan packaging.
