The NACCED which stands of National Association of County Community and Economic Development was established back in 1978 as an affiliate to the NACo (National Association of Counties). The reason behind the establishment of this organization was to develop the county government practitioners technically. These practitioners administer the affordable housing and community development programs that are funded federally and these programs benefit the low and moderate income households.
NACCED assists the counties which receives direct assistance from Department of HUD’s (Housing and Urban Department’s) Community Planning and Development programs by providing the information as well as important training. The CDBG (Community Development Block Grant), HOME (HOME Investment Partnerships) and ESG (Emergency Solutions Grant) also come under these programs. When it comes to budgetary, regulatory or programmatic issues relevant to community development or affordable housing the NACCED acts as a voice in Washington.for related information, visit : https://www.hudexchange.info/programs/cdbg-entitlement/
