A National Network For Advancing Community Prosperity

NACEDA is alliance of 40 state and regional community development associations in 25 states and the District of Columbia who are dedicated to improving places for the people who live and work there.

Through our members, NACEDA connects with almost 4,000 community development nonprofit organizations throughout the United States. Together, we work at the local, state and national levels to advance opportunity and prosperity in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods that have experienced a significant lack of investment. 

NACEDA is a proud partner in People & Places 2019 — the national event that brings together community-based organizations from across the nation to share what's working to improve lives in lower-income and minority communities. Plan to attend April 15-17 in Arlington, Virginia (minutes from Washington, DC).
