Neighborhood Advisory Boards (NABs) provide residents of low-income
communities with an opportunity to help DYCD identify funding priorities.
NABs serve Neighborhood
Development Areas (NDAs), which are low-income neighborhoods designated as
needing community development support. NAB members are responsible for helping
to identify the needs of their local communities. DYCD takes their findings into
consideration when allocating federal Community Services Block Grant (CSBG)
Each NDA is represented by a 7 to 12-member Board (NAB) with the authority to
help identify community priorities and recommend specific programs. Six members
may be selected by DYCD, and six members may be nominated by elected public
officials. NAB members must:
- Be full-time residents of the NDA they represent
- Have lived in the neighborhood for a minimum of six months
- Be at least 18 years of age
- Have no formal associations with any organization that receives DYCD
funding under the CSBG program
All NAB meetings are open to the public, and are conducted at sites
accessible to members and the general public. Minutes of NAB meetings are also
available upon request.
Residents who are interested in joining an NAB and playing an
important role in their community should complete an
