Coalition For Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development

The Coalition for Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development fosters just and equitable community economic development solutions. CNHED combines high impact advocacy, policy making, public education, capacity building and information and analysis to advance its mission of strengthening non-profit mission-driven developers.

CNHED has collected data on affordable-housing properties’ cash flows during the COVID-19 pandemic and will extend this tracking through June to understand the evolving impact of the outbreak.

ANHD’s CDC Advocacy Committee

The CDC’s experts work 24/7 to protect Americans from health, safety and security threats. Whether they are caused by disease outbreaks or bioterrorist attacks, these experts respond to ensure that everyone can be safe and healthy in America and around the world.

ANHD’s advocacy committee is an important part of the CDC’s network of community leaders and advocates who support CDC’s mission to protect the public’s health. ANHD’s staff works closely with committee members to advance their priorities and help them achieve success.

ANHD’s CDC Advocacy Committee provides advice and recommendations to CDC leadership on policy issues and broad strategies that significantly affect American Indian communities. In addition, the committee supports CDC efforts to promote health equity across all of the Centers and offices of the agency. The committee also oversees and provides initial and annual ethics training for CDC advisory committee members in accordance with federal law. ANHD’s staff also coordinates with the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) to ensure rigorous reviews and conflict of interest analyses of CDC advisory committee members’ financial disclosure reports.

ANHD’s CDC Network

ANHD’s staff supports members to develop and implement these catalytic projects through technical assistance, flexible financial resources, access to leaders in city government, and capacity-building trainings. Staff also carries out research and advocacy on crosscutting issues such as stronger anti-displacement policies, tenant protections, responsible banking and equitable economic development.

By the end of the 1990s, CDCs had substantially boosted their production capabilities and rose to prominence on local political agendas. This was a result of new collaborations between CDCs and others that brought them together with the people who command community development resources. These collaborations, examined in section 5, also boosted the power of CDCs’ leadership systems.

Some networks take a more centralized approach, organizing summits and meetings for the public and bringing in outside experts. For example, SCANPH in Los Angeles brought together CDCs and social justice groups to collaborate on the housing trust fund campaigns in LA and Seattle. They used a network meeting to discuss a request for proposals that would build housing over schools.

ANHD’s CDC Programs

Public health professionals work to prevent people from getting sick or injured through implementing education programs, recommending policies and administering services. They also seek to limit health disparities.

Frontline state and local health departments are critical to the nation’s ability to monitor, prevent, and respond to emerging infectious diseases. CDC’s Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Prevention of Emerging Infectious Diseases (ELC) Program provides funding and technical assistance support.

ANHD’s Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities Reduction Awards Program (REACH) partners with communities across the country to reduce health disparities through culturally tailored interventions. These activities are designed to help communities build capacity and improve outcomes in chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

ANHD supports CDC’s efforts to provide high quality continuing education for public health professionals. CDC partners with universities, nonprofits, and other organizations to develop educational activities that meet the accreditation standards of nine accrediting bodies. The ANHD Community Design program is another example of this effort.

ANHD’s CDC Partners

In New York City, CDCs are fighting to have the greatest impact in their neighborhoods with projects such as developing and managing affordable housing, designing and building parks and community facilities, running employment and community development programs, and supporting small businesses. ANHD works to help CDCs win policy support from the City to achieve their goals.

The Health Partner Investment Action Lab (HPIAL) supports ANHD network organizations as they work with their health sector partners on upstream investments in affordable housing. HPIAL provides funding, training, and one-on-one support to explore this newer source of capital.

Urban Design Forum and ANHD are seeking an independent video storyteller to document the first projects of the Local Center, a new community design initiative that equips neighborhood leaders with the power and resources to shape public space. The inaugural cohort will include five neighborhood organizations that plan to reclaim public spaces for new cultural celebrations and storytelling. The partners will develop creative activations reimagining Flatbush African Burial Ground in Brooklyn; realize art installations honoring self-determination under the Bruckner Expressway in Soundview, Bronx; and celebrate Indo-Caribbean culture through street fairs in Richmond Hill, Queens.
