TAMPA, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 -- American Community Development Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ACYD)
American Community Development Group, Inc. (ACYD) with Global Deal Funding Group (GDFG) have entered into a 50/50 joint venture that collectively enhances ACYD's ability to finance, acquire, operate, and manage real estate properties designed to house the transitional clients of nonprofits and otherwise execute the transitional housing portion of its business model throughout North America, thereby enhancing the socioeconomic fabric of our communities. This joint venture is the first step in a series of relationships and ventures designed to increase operational revenue, asset acquisition and market expansion.
The ACYD and Global Deal Funding, LLC Joint Venture encompasses a coordinated national program that includes marketing, management and advisory services to those nonprofit groups or government agencies that will support the expansion of the ACYD transitional housing mission.

This will be accomplished by the initial concentration of efforts in the Tampa Bay, Florida market, but with the ability and intention to grow regionally and nationally. Plans include the coordination and implementation of a national marketing program that will provide regional educational opportunities for funding, the first of which is scheduled for the Tampa market in January of 2013.
