The NorthEast Development Alliance, Inc., (NEDA) is a community development corporation conceived by the residents of the Northeast Community Organization (NECO), a 35-year-old umbrella organization that represents 30 neighborhood associations in central northeast Baltimore City. In partnership with the MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital, Morgan State University and NECO, the NorthEast Development Alliance was founded and incorporated in 2002. NEDA, a non-profit 501c3, is a community-driven development corporation whose primary mission is to improve the physical and economic infrastructure of its community, enhance the residential marketability of its neighborhoods and strengthen the civic fabric among its residents.
The NEDA service area is bounded by the City line, 33rd Street, York Road and Hillen Road and Perring Parkway. Within this geographical quadrant, NEDA functions to promote homeownership and the community's affordable housing market, revitalize its neighborhood shopping areas, promote its community facilities, and preserve its parks, open spaces and recreational amenities. To do this, NEDA collaborates with its member organizations and forges partnerships with other development entities. These alliances assist NEDA with projects and activities designed to improve the quality of life throughout its service area, neighborhood by neighborhood.
NEDA is represented by a 15-member Board of Directors composed of neighborhood residents, development, business and real estate professionals. The operation of the corporation is managed by an Executive Director. Learn about our partnerships and projects.
