12 single family homes for ownership
Boynton Beach CDC was created in 1999 to address the lack of
affordable housing in Boynton Beach. The founders – including
government, religious, business, grass roots, community and civic
leaders – were frustrated with the conditions of slum, blight, crime,
poverty and hopelessness they saw in their community.
Throughout its existence, Boynton Beach CDC has made housing for
low-income residents a priority. The organization works with area
housing agencies, local builders, developers, and government entities
to develop homes that improve neighborhoods and benefit low income
Through a recent grant from the City of Boynton Beach's NSP Program,
Boynton Beach CDC acquired and renovated 21 foreclosed homes and
constructed 5 new 3- bedroom homes that were all sold to eligible low
income buyers. The organization has directly provided homes for 40 families, and has offered homebuyer education and counseling to over 3,000 participants, resulting in 142 low-income families becoming home owners.
In addition to acquisition, renovation and new construction of homes, Boynton Beach CDC offers programs and services in the following areas:
Home Ownership Counseling
Foreclosure Intervention/ Counseling

Model Block Affordable Single-Family Housing Project
PROJECT LOCATION: block between W. MLK Jr. Blvd to south, N. Seacrest to east, NW 11th Ave to north and NW 1st St to west
COMMENCEMENT: October 2009
COMPLETION: May 2022
DEVELOPER(s): Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County and Boynton Beach Faith Based Community Development Corporation
BBCRA DISTRICT: Heart of Boynton
RIGHT-OF-WAY IMPROVEMENTS: $13,000
The Model Block project, located within the Heart of Boynton and Poinciana Gardens neighborhood is the result of the successful collaboration between the BBCRA and the City of Boynton Beach to revitalize an entire residential block directly south of Poinciana Elementary School between NW 11th Avenue and NW 10th Avenue.
Since the beginning of the project in 2012, the BBCRA and the City have partnered with Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County and the Boynton Beach Faith Based Community Development Corporation (CDC) to construct and deliver a total of sixteen (16) new affordable single-family homes.
Phase I of the project began with acquisition and development of six single family affordable homes and streetscape improvements on NW 10th Avenue. These new homes were constructed and sold to income eligible buyers by Habitat for Humanity and the Boynton Beach Faith Based CDC.
Phase II of the project commenced in June of 2018 and was completed in April of 2019 when the BBCRA contributed $12,817.63 as a match to funding provided by the City of Boynton Beach for road improvements and underground utilities on NW 11th Avenue. The three BBCRA-owned vacant properties located on NW 11th Avenue were transferred to the City to facilitate the redevelopment process since these lots, combined with the City-owned lots, needed be replatted to create ten new single-family lots. Five of the ten lots were subsequently transferred to Habitat for Humanity and remaining five to the Boynton Beach Faith Based CDC for development of affordable single-family housing.
The construction of the ten single family homes on NW 11th Avenue commenced on August 8, 2019. As of May 2022, the homes are completed and owner-occupied.
