Welcome to the Neighborhood Empowerment Network!

Neighborhoods everywhere are taking a leadership role in advancing their resilience. By developing local action plans that create in mitigation, preparedness and response strategies, communities can reduce the impact of disasters on their residents, key local organizations and businesses. The Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN) uses its capacity building initiative, Empowered Communities Program (ECP), to bring together government, nonprofit, academic and private sector agencies to work side by side with neighborhood stakeholders to strengthen their community’s ability to successfully negotiate and recover from disasters.


Programs implemented by Neighborhood Empowerment Network support communities as they build stronger and more resilient neighborhoods through collective problem solving by streamlining their access to organizations, programs, resources and technical support. See below for a full list of our programs!

The ECP adds value to the current capacity building efforts by traditional emergency preparedness organizations by facilitating the development of a neighborhood action plan with broad stakeholder participation that advances a community’s overall resilience and generates long term ownership of its implementation.
