Executive Director

North of Market Neighborhood Improvement Corp. (NOMNIC)

Job Announcement for

Executive Director of the

Tenderloin Economic Development Project

The Tenderloin Economic Development Project (TEDP) is a program of the North of Market Neighborhood Improvement Corporation (NOMNIC). The Tenderloin Economic Development Project Director manages daily operations and works with a diverse assembly of neighborhood residents and stakeholders in the fields of arts, education, business, technology, services, housing and hospitality. Our goal is equitable development for San Francisco’s Tenderloin/Mid-Market community.


NOMNIC was created in 1999 to start up and operate a sidewalk-cleaning program in the Tenderloin – the Tenderloin Sidewalk Improvement Project (TSIP).

In 2005 NOMNIC/TSIP sponsored a drive to create the North of Market Tenderloin Community Benefit District ; a property tax assessment district. Support came from community members as diverse as property owners and members of the Coalition on Homelessness.

The North of Market Tenderloin Community Benefit District absorbed the sidewalk-cleaning program, which resulted in the expansion of its funding base. NOMNIC then facilitated a study of the economic development needs of the Tenderloin, which became the basis for creating the Tenderloin Economic Development Project (TEDP). A major conclusion of that research was that TEDP should be an economic development facilitator, not a creator of new programs.

NOMNIC has been pivotal in collaborating with citywide stakeholders in attracting millions of dollars of investments in the Tenderloin/mid-Market neighborhood, advocating for the payroll tax exemption that has attracted major businesses, and facilitating the successful entitlement of a major retail development.

NOMNIC has also been instrumental in organizing a diverse array of neighborhood stakeholders to participate in the planning and implementation of revitalization efforts. Our focus for the last three years represents the diversity of neighborhood interests, which culminated in the ongoing 950 Center Arts and Education project, a critical component of a larger mixed-use development at the corner of Market and Turk street scheduled for completion in 2017.
