Our Purpose

To support and build the field of community-driven planning by elevating the expertise of grassroots leaders, while being accountable to frontline communities.

Our Vision

We envision nurturing a growing national network of community-driven planning efforts led by grassroots community leaders, facilitators, and multi-sector partners working together to subvert the top-down planning paradigm. The NACRP supports a community of applied practice through trainings, workshops, peer learning, resourcing, coaching, facilitation certification, referrals, and ongoing member engagement.
