CNHED's Mission

To strengthen and support the ability of nonprofit community development organizations to improve the quality of life in the District of Columbia’s neighborhoods through advocacy, information sharing, training, capacity building, research and communications. 

Who we are?

CNHED is a 501(c)3 umbrella organization that supports the nonprofit housing and economic development industry in Washington, DC.  Our membership represents a broad spectrum of nonprofit and for-profit affordable housing developers, special needs housing service agencies, faith-based organizations, community development corporations, funders, lenders and government agencies.  This diversity enables CNHED to continue... Building Strong Neighborhoods Together.


Housing -- The Housing Committee has the following areas of emphasis: homeownership (single family and multi-family), rental, and special needs housing. The Committee is responsible for developing a policy agenda and educational materials related to affordable housing. The Committee also works closely with CNHED's Housing for All Campaign.

Economic Development -- The Economic Development Committee is responsible for compiling information and developing a policy agenda and educational materials on behalf of neighborhood-based economic development. 

Program and Communications -- The Program and Communications Committee plans and schedules guest speakers, special events, and helps to develop a communications strategy for the Coalition that raises its visibility, along with the visibility of its members.

Training and Capacity Building -- The Training and Capacity Building Committee develops and oversees the implementation of the Coalition's training institute and other means of building the capacity of members through education and partnership. 

Research -- The Research Committee assists in setting the research agenda for CNHED's Center for Practical Research and its members serve as peer reviewers to ensure the timeliness and accuracy of our publications.
