NeighborWorks is a national network dedicated to revitalizing
neighborhoods.  NeighborWorks's core is the Neighborhood Reinvestment
Corporation, established in 1978, dedicated to revitalization of
declining low- and moderate-income neighborhoods for the benefit of
current residents, and the expansion of affordable housing and home
ownership opportunities.  The Corporation primarily seeks to achieve
these goals by developing and supporting (through training and
technical assistance programs) local neighborhood-based partnerships
of residents, business leaders, and local government officials.
Neighborhoods Housing Services (NHS) and Mutual Housing Associations
(MHA) make up many but not all the local non-profit organizations
affiliated through the NeighborWorks network.  NeighborWorks
organizations are active in 358 neighborhoods in 151 cities and towns
across the country.

Although the Corporation was created by an act of Congress and is
funded primarily by congressional appropriations, volunteers serve
major roles within the local organizations.
