Pasco County Community Development is thrilled to take our innovative initiatives on homelessness, neighborhood revitalization, affordable housing and community partnerships to the national level with Director Marcy Esbjerg’s recent selection as President to the National Community Development Association (NCDA).

“NCDA has been a huge factor in my professional career,” says Esbjerg.  “The training I’ve received, along with the networking and relationships I’ve fostered, have allowed me to deliver quality programs in Pasco County. It’s an honor and privilege to serve NCDA in this capacity!”

Esbjerg joined Pasco County Community Development in 2018, bringing 22 years of experience working with other Entitlement Communities including Burlington, Vermont and Collier County, Florida.

Since joining NCDA in 2007, Esbjerg has served on several committees including the Executive Committee for the past three years.  As President of NCDA, she’ll continue to share best practices on housing, homelessness and community development initiatives during annual and legislative conferences.  Esbjerg will serve a one-year term for 2024-2025.  NCDA is a premier membership organization consisting of more than 500 local governments that administer HUD community development, affordable housing and economic development programs.

Community Development’s mission is to improve the lives of Pasco’s citizens through homeless initiatives, neighborhood revitalization, affordable housing and community partnerships using state and federal funding.  For more information, visit: mypas.co/CommDev
