Dallas Collaborative for Equitable Development (DCED)

Making Positive Changes

The Dallas Collaborative for Equitable Development (DCED) is a partnership between TREC Community Investors, Dallas College, and LiftFund that launched in October 2019 with a $6 million investment from JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s Partnerships for Raising Opportunity (PRO) in Neighborhoods program.

This powerful group is dedicated to expanding equitable housing and real estate development, jobs and wealth creation, and community ownership and leadership opportunities in three Dallas neighborhoods considered most vulnerable to rapid economic transition: The Bottom, West Dallas-Census Tract 205, and the Forest District.
