About the Program

In this 12-18 month program, NLA staff and consultants work closely with leaders to help them identify strengths, challenges, and needs, and match them with the appropriate trainings, resources, and experts to build a strong organizational foundation. We focus on core capacity fields such as strategic planning, diversity and inclusion, organizational development, communications, and fundraising, among other areas. In short, we provide the capacity-building resources new organizations need to become sustainable, effective advocates for change.

NLA selects a limited cohort of 6-10 organizations each year whose work falls into one of the following categories:

  • Securing and maintaining a diverse, progressive political power base

  • Protecting and strengthening civil liberties

  • Educating the public and elected officials about progressive policy issues

  • Advancing a progressive policy agenda at the local, state, or federal level
