NACEDA is an alliance of 45 state and regional community development associations in 28 states and the District of Columbia. Through our members, NACEDA connects with almost 4,000 community development nonprofit organizations throughout the United States.

Access Presentations from NACEDA Summit 2016

NACEDA's 9th Annual Summit featured a one-day symposium − Community Development & the Social Determinants of Health − sponsored by New Venture Fund with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The Ohio CDC Association co-hosted the summit, which brought together community development association professionals and their partners from around the country on August 29-31 in Cleveland, Ohio. Healthcare professionals joined this year us for an important conversation on how treating the neighborhood and not just the patient can lead to better health outcomes − often at lower cost.
