Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation
TNDC provides safe, affordable housing with support services for low-income people in the Tenderloin community.
Since 1981, Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) has been committed to making the Tenderloin and surrounding neighborhoods a better place to live. We provide safe, affordable housing and support services in order to lay the foundation for a better quality of life for low-income people in San Francisco.
TNDC was the brainchild of a group of Tenderloin urban pioneers. Because the Tenderloin was zoned commercial and had a height limit of 30 stories in 1981 it was feared that thousands of low-income people living in the Tenderloin would be displaced by large commercial development projects. Since the Tenderloin had the lowest rents in the city, these people would have had no place to go. The Tenderloin community successfully petitioned the city to rezone the area to residential and lower the height limit to eight stories. www.tndc.org
