The Hunts Point Development Corporation was founded in 1988 and for over three decades served as a vital support to the Hunts Point Industrial Zone.
In the last several years, Hunts Point EDC has become an affiliate of Urban Health Plan, Inc., as UHP has broadened its work to include not only healthcare but also community development.
HPDC's mission is to improve the quality of life for residents and businesses in Hunts Point, Longwood, Port Morris and adjacent South Bronx neighborhoods.
HPEDC continues to work with businesses in wholesale food manufacturing and distribution but has also engaged a wider range of business sectors and community development issues, including local workforce development, entrepreneurship, sustainability, transportation and housing. Our membership arm is the Greater Hunts Point Chamber of Commerce.
HPEDC and Ubran Health Plan are not-for-profit corporations and tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
