National Neighbors

National Neighbors, a program of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, is dedicated to creating public and private sector partnerships and programs that promote racial and cultural equality, opportunity and diversity.  It does this by increasing multi-cultural dialogue and access, influencing public policy, and developing national models that support healthy and sustainable communities through the realization of our nation’s civil rights laws.

Through the National Neighbors initiative, NCRC convenes, supports and pursues workshops, conferences, investigations of civil rights complaints, systemic "testing," education and outreach, fair housing planning and "best practice" compliance initiatives. National Neighbors provides technical assistance to NCRC’s members in urban, suburban and rural communities to promote economic mobility and ensure fair housing for working families throughout our nation.

National Neighbors advances fair lending and fair housing through multifaceted programs, including:  private enforcement; education and outreach; fair housing planning; comprehensive voluntary compliance services; and testing and building partnerships among communities, real estate providers, financial institutions and other market players.

National Neighbors refocuses the fair housing movement on the importance of realizing racial and economic integration through innovative and cutting edge programs and partnerships.  These partnerships celebrate neighborhood diversity and increase the capacity of existing organizations to make them more capable and comprehensive fair housing service providers. National Neighbors also promotes the policy & regulatory interests of the fair housing movement on Capitol Hill.

Partnering for Healthy Neighborhoods

National Neighbors develops and funds local initiatives and partnerships that celebrate neighborhood diversity and promote equal housing opportunity.  NCRC encourages the development of partnerships and coalitions among community organizations to enhance their capacity, coordinate strategic initiatives, and ensure pertinent services are provided to the community.
