Flatbush Development Corporation (FDC) is dedicated to meeting the needs of a diverse Brooklyn community. FDC identifies and responds to these needs by creating programs, campaigns, and partnerships through economic development, housing, youth, immigration and other initiatives that promote enhanced quality of life, equity, safety, and preservation of our community. FDC’s dedicated and professional staff are led by a Board of Directors comprised of community residents, merchants, and business leaders who are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for all members of the Flatbush Community and beyond. Complementing these programs are efforts to promote the Greater Flatbush community and a commitment to its future. FDC’s Signature events are the Victorian Flatbush House and Garden Tour, the Flatbush Frolic Street Fair, the Anti- Graffiti Task Force and Neighborhood Clean-Up, Cortelyou at Twilight, Eat & Shop, Summer Movies on Cortelyou, a free Family Block Party, and an Annual Awards dinner honoring community volunteers and leaders. Through a combination of public and private funds, community support and volunteer efforts, FDC continues to maintain the vitality, diversity and quality of life that only an urban community can offer. But there is still much to be done. Affordable housing needs to be preserved and built, commercial revitalization must continue, and quality-of-life issues must be addressed to maintain a vibrant neighborhood.
