The National Community Development Association (NCDA) is a non-partisan national nonprofit association comprised of more than 500 local governments across the country that administer federally – supported community development, affordable housing, and economic development programs through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). NCDA members administer HUD Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) programs – CDBG, HOME, Homeless Assistance Grants, and HOPWA.

Since 1969, NCDA has been at the forefront in securing federal resources and designing effective and responsive housing and community development programs for local governments.

  • NCDA provides timely, direct information and training to its members on federal housing and
    community development programs.
  • NCDA services as a national clearinghouse of ideas for federal policy makers on pertinent issues
    affecting its membership.
  • NCDA provides HUD CPD grantees with the necessary knowledge and skills to become more
    effective and dynamic community development administrators.
