Nehemiah Economic Development Inc. is a Not-For-Profit Community based organization founded in 1994 for the economic development of the Nehemiah Housing Community in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn. From its inception N.E.D has grown from a small group with no resources, to include redevelopment of neglected properties and the provision of scholarships to local children. It is N.E.D's goal to further develop and upgrade vacant lots and abandoned building in the Brownsville-East New York section of Brooklyn into affordable housing and to revitalize the community. N.E.D strives to provide incentives for work and education to the youth of the community by creating college pathway initiatives, workforce development and merit scholarships.
