Eagle Market Streets' is a non-profit organization serving Western North Carolina with a focus on community support, property and economic development. Founded in 1994 under the leadership of Dr. John H. Grant and the auspices of Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church, EMSDC aims
to build a foundation for the future by developing people, property and businesses block by block.
We develop people, property and business in an effort to support and catalyze the upward mobility of disenfranchised communities.
We do this through attainable housing, commercial leasing opportunities and capital injections into developing businesses.
We envision a sustainable community of equity and inclusion. We consider our role in that future to be that of a resource. We aim to make the promise of America real for all individuals by advocating for economic and social justice and helping disenfranchised communities build generational wealth and create economic opportunity.
