Neighborhood Advisory Committees

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

  • Promoting sustainability through recycling, cleaning, planting and alternative energy efforts
  • Creating employment opportunities through job placement and training, retail revitalization, and educational assistance efforts
  • Enhancing neighborhood safety through town watches, youth mentoring and community outreach programs
  • Educating residents as to the programs and opportunities available to them, such as new affordable housing, housing preservation programs, mortgage foreclosure prevention services, and other City programs and services
  • Ensuring resident participation in City planning efforts

Nineteen NACs serve Philadelphia’s low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.
