Neighborhoods U.S.A. (NUSA) is all about neighborhoods. NUSA is a national non-profit organization committed to building and strengthening neighborhood organizations. Created in 1975 to share information and experiences used to build stronger communities, NUSA continues to encourage networking and information-sharing to facilitate the development of partnerships among neighborhood organizations, government and the private sector for the ultimate goal of strengthening every neighborhood.

The organizational mission of NUSA has, since its inception, been to build and strengthen neighborhood associations and to promote productive communications and collaborations among those associations with both the public and private sectors. For the past 41 years, the organization has served these broad principles through its annual conference. NUSA's annual conference provides an opportunity for people from all locations, sectors and levels of society to discuss the pressing issues of the times, share experiences and offer assistance, motivation and encouragement.

NUSA is governed by a 21-member Board of Directors, where members are elected annually to staggered 3-year terms to serve voluntarily and at his/her own expense. The Board directs the ongoing business and policy of the organization, provides oversight for the implementation of each years conference and plays a leadership role in promoting both our organization and the work of neighborhood based activism and self-help initiatives.
