Neighborhood Advisory Committees

Neighborhood Advisory Committee Program

DHCD’s Neighborhood Advisory Committees (NACs) Program offers community-based nonprofit organizations the opportunity to lead and engage residents in eligible neighborhoods in activities that support the City’s core objectives, including:

  • Promoting neighborhood sustainability through programs addressing homelessness prevention, energy conservation education, housing preservation, neighborhood safety, and health and wellness
  • Utilizing referral services for available housing counseling, workforce development and economic opportunities
  • Cultivating youth mentoring and civic engagement
  • Ensuring resident participation in City planning and development initiatives
