Our History

Ibero-American Development Corporation was established in 1986 as an affiliate of the Ibero-American Action League, Inc. (Ibero) under the name Pueblo Home Development Corporation. In 1995, the name of the Corporation was changed to Ibero-American Development Corporation. The purposes of the corporation include:

1. To provide "dwelling accommodations and social and recreational facilities to persons and families of low and moderate income."

2. "Act as a real estate manager of projects developed by it or by Ibero-American Action League, Inc."

3. "To provide quality affordable housing and opportunities for economic advancement for Hispanic and other minority persons and families."

At its inception, the primary activity of IADC was the development and management of properties occupied by its affiliated company, the Ibero-American Action League, Inc. Over the years, IADC has expanded its focus on property management to include the development of affordable housing and commercial facilities for the Latino community within its service area. In connection with these expanded goals, IADC in August, 1992 launched an affordable housing initiative and was designated by HUD as a "Community Housing Development Organization" ("CHDO") in the City of Rochester under the federal Home Investment Partnership Program ("HOME"). This has made IADC eligible to receive allocations of HOME funds for affordable housing development. To date, and acting as construction manager and real estate agents IADC has developed and sold hundreds of vacant houses to low and moderate income homebuyers. IADC has also initiated activities to develop commercial space to house services for the Latino Community and others.
