National Survey of Community-Based Development Organizations

DATA IS POWER — National Survey Closed on November 4

NACEDA — the National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations  —  commissioned the Urban Institute to conduct the survey. It included questions community-based development organizations' production, programs, leadership, needs, and services. The survey results will provide the solid data that our sector needs to need to:

  • advocate for funding
  • strengthen relationships with investors
  • build partnerships
  • increase capacity
  • support diverse leadership
  • drive new resources to community development nonprofits

Community-Based Development Organizations are private, nonprofit, community-based organizations that 1) develop housing, commercial, industrial or community facilities, or 2) support business development. Their work generally involves projects and programs aimed at improving the lives of lower-income people or the communities they live in. Organizations that provide social services and also do development are included in this survey.
