Neighborhood housing depends on neighborhood housing providers.

Housing policy only works with the involvement of housing providers.

The Neighborhood Building Owners Alliance (NBOA) is the voice of neighborhood housing in Chicago. It represents Chicago’s small and mid-sized housing providers, most of whom live, hire and buy supplies in the communities they serve.

The NBOA serves the members of its nine community building owner affiliates. Like those affiliates, the NBOA is a forum for information, professional development and networking.

In addition, the NBOA advocates on behalf of small and mid-sized housing providers. Its team of professionals works to tell the story of neighborhood housing in the media, and to lobby public officials to ensure housing providers are part of housing policy.

Sean Easton of the Greater Austin Development Association (GADA) spoke on ABC-7 News on November 14, 2022.

“One of my first projects I actually gutted a building and we ended up putting a homeless shelter in there,” Easton said. “So I’m very focused on how do we build communities from within. For me, I’m all for the spirit of the bill, which is helping to end homelessness, but you can’t do it by slowing down the growth of small to medium sized neighborhood building owners.”

Advocacy

Now, more than ever, it’s important for all voices to be heard. We work with our members to understand all points of view and educate city officials on our discoveries and perspectives.

Educational Opportunities

We find opportunities to gather owners, developers and their potential counterparts to keep them abreast of new legislation, trends. and partnerships on the horizon.

Strategy & Planning

Rather than working on an individual basis or in small groups, we gather information from all our partners to build strategic positions that mitigate ineffective rules & regulations.
