Foothills Community Development Corporation (FCDC) was created in 2002 to supplement Blount County Habitat for Humanity’s affordable home building program. As a community development corporation, FCDC has broader authority to not only accommodate families that earned above those that Habitat could serve, but also more freedom to renovate and construct homes for the low income population. Actual construction of the first home was completed in 2005, and since then dozens of new homes have been built throughout the county. Foothills CDC is headquartered in Maryville, Tennessee, situated just south of Knoxville in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.
The Foothills Community Development Corporation is a IRS-designated 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation organized in the State of Tennessee to expand affordable housing opportunities for low and moderate income residents of Blount County, Tennessee. FCDC is recognized by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Tennessee Housing Development Agency as a Community Housing Development Organization and as an Equal Housing Lender that promotes Fair Housing.
