I just completed my dissertation on the community participation of board
and staff members of CDCs. The surveyed organizations were all from
Indianapolis, Indiana. I hope to publish the literature review and the
data analysis in 2 articles in the coming year..

James - The last one I know of was done by NACEDA (NCCED's reincarnation as
an association of state and local associations) and released in 2010:
The methodology is not comparable to earlier NCCED census surveys. It does
take a look at foreclosure crisis response by CDCs.
You will have to contact them to see if they have any plans to repeat this
in the near future.
Do keep me posted. I'm interested in your train of thought.
