Fairfield Community Development Corporation (“FCDC”) is a 501(c)(3) that was created after the City of Huntington received the America’s Best Community Award and is funded by Foundation of the Tri-State.  The Fairfield CDC consists of stakeholders from the Fairfield neighborhood, Marshall University, Cabell Huntington Hospital, the City of Huntington, and the Huntington Housing Authority. FCDC’s mission is to advance and unify the Fairfield community through community development, redevelopment, and economic development activities to enhance the physical, economic, health, safety, welfare, and social aspects of all residents. Our vision is to serve as the community hub in making the Fairfield community a close-nit, safe and nurturing place for families, businesses, and neighborhoods to grow and thrive. We are here to serve residents regardless of their economic status, ethnicity, race, gender, age, and/or sexual orientation.
