Summer Soirée is coming!


Be sure to attend the most fun, high profile Summer event in Chicago neighborhood housing.

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.




Buildings owned or managed


Apartment units under ownership or management

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.

As summer of 2022 approaches, the NBOA faces a cash crunch.  Our thanks to those members who have made contributions in appreciation for all the NBOA does to strengthen neighborhood housing.
Please consider joining them. Unless the NBOA can generate an influx of revenue, we will be required to make some really hard choices.

It need not be this way.

Thanks to Jay and Michael for taking the time to educate us.


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.
