Migration Policy Institute

The Neighborhood Development Center (NDC), a Minnesota-based nonprofit that seeks to revitalize low-income neighborhoods in the Twin Cities, is one of four 2013 winners of the Migration Policy Institute’s E Pluribus Unum Prize honoring exceptional immigrant integration initiatives. NDC, which has earned a place at the leading edge of practice in both the community development and immigrant integration fields, has worked in 25 diverse low-income neighborhoods in St. Paul and Minneapolis since 1993, providing training to more than 4,250 entrepreneurs, including nearly 1,500 immigrants; $10 million in small business financing, nearly half to new and existing immigrant-owned businesses; and 40,000 hours of consulting to small businesses. In this video, MPI’s Margie McHugh along with NDC’s Mihailo Temali and Teshite Wako discuss NDC’s work and what makes it exceptional.
