The Mount Washington Community Development Corporation (MWCDC) aims to cultivate growth, development, and investment in Pittsburgh’s Mount Washington and Duquesne Heights neighborhoods. Since 2006, it has helped establish more than 16 new businesses in the area, creating more than 100 jobs and bringing millions of dollars into the community. In August 2010, the MWCDC commissioned a ten-year housing strategy that is now guiding its work to create an inclusive, viable and sustainable housing stock, and has resulted in several completed residential rehab projects. MWCDC also serves as a co-steward for Pittsburgh’s newest regional park, Emerald View Park, a 257-acre urban greenspace. Its Emerald Trail Corps program provides at-risk adults job training opportunities while constructing park trails and performing ecological restoration.
