Welcome to the Neighborhood Empowerment Network

Neighborhoods everywhere are taking a leadership role in advancing their resilience. Communities can reduce the impact of disasters on their residents, key local organizations, and businesses by developing local action plans outlining mitigation, preparedness and response strategies.

The Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN) developed the 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 prepare for and recover from disasters.

The NEN implements programs to support communities as they build stronger, more resilient neighborhoods. These programs streamline community access to organizations, programs, resources, and technical support. See below for a full list of our programs!

The ECP facilitates development of a neighborhood action plan with extensive stakeholder participation. Click on the below icons to learn more about each community!
