Back to where it all started....


Thirty years ago, the Texas Association of Community Development Corporations (TACDC) held it's first official annual conference on South Padre Island.  As we celebrate this anniversary, we thought it would only be appropriate to return to where it all began.  As a result, we are anticipating that the upcoming 2023 Texas Community Development Conference in South Padre will be one its most successful events to date.  We hope to see friends both old and new.  As members of the community development network in Texas, we thank you for your involvement and hope that you will attend this important event.


Quality housing is a critical component of self-sufficiency and community resilience.  Affordable housing continues to be a concern throughout the state of Texas as demand continually exceeds the supply.  Older housing stock and reduced buying power put more and more Texans at risk of not only paying more than they can afford for housing, but leave many faced with high energy burdens and limited ability to control energy costs. 


The members of TACDC are among the most active developers of affordable housing and financiers of community development in the state.  They have produced thousands of units of affordable housing and financed a significant number of ventures in business development.  Additionally, in recent years our membership has expanded to include a number of community-based organizations whose primary missions include health care, education, and other services relate to developing communities are becoming increasingly active in TACDC events.

We want to invite you to participate in our 2023 conference to meet and interact with other members, supporters, funders, and other attendees.  Your presence as an attendee, sponsor, or exhibitor will allow you to showcase your own community development services or products, learn from your peers,  and provide the opportunity to strengthen existing partnerships or forge new ones.  Here's to 30 more years!

Member Rate - $225
Non Member Rate - $275

Rates go up March 17th!
