National NeighborWorks Association is a membership-based trade association
Our effectiveness in policy formation, access to funding and member benefits is greatly enhanced with a large and engaged membership. NNA, in 2020, represents 93% of the NeighborWorks chartered organizations (NWOs). With this level of membership, we are able to not only provide directive and effective calls to action for policy and funding, but also to provide membership benefits that either reduce operating costs or increase revenues. NNA is looking to increase our reach and effectiveness by looking towards other levels of membership to benefit others in the non-profit housing industry.
NNA unites housing and community development practitioners to advocate for housing and economic opportunities for individuals, families, communities, and neighborhoods across the country.
NNA envisions playing a central role in creating a united housing and community development field that produces desirable, healthy and thriving communities.
NNA has been an advocate for better neighborhoods and housing for low- to moderate-income American families since 1996. As the voice of NeighborWorks® organizations (NWOs) nationwide, NNA advocates by giving voice to the issues faced by its membership of ground-level practitioners and experts. NNA actively offers solutions to advance affordable housing and economic opportunities for communities and families across the country.
