Asian Community Development Corporation works to build healthy, vibrant neighborhoods and a strong Asian American community.

ACDC was founded in 1987 to serve the Asian American community of Greater Boston, with an emphasis on preserving and revitalizing Boston's Chinatown.

ACDC will be the leading regional developer and preserver of affordable housing in areas of Greater Boston with high concentrations of Asian Americans by:

  • Providing culturally appropriate and locally sensitive programs that enable residents to effectively improve their quality of life and the health and sustainability of their neighborhood;
  • Preserving Chinatown as a cultural hub and gateway for new immigrants; and
  • Strengthening our Asian American community by leading placemaking efforts.
