Throughout the southern United States, the National Asset Building Coalition (NABC) works with organizations to enhance the economic vitality and competitiveness of the region's Forgotten Communities. The NABC team works with historic African American communities to help them recognize, promote and capitalize upon their existing assets, through its asset mapping process and by coordinating the efforts of local chambers, business and community organizations. A community’s assets may include culture and historical its natural resources, recreational sites, local eateries, or historical buildings and monuments. Once assets are identified, the team recommends strategies to community leaders that will promote and develop the assets to further strengthen the local community and economy. Working in collaboration with the National Black Business Support Corporation and the Pan African Cultural Heritage Institute's partners, the National Asset Building Coalition offers a variety of programs and services designed to create more vibrant neighborhoods and communities and enriching the lives of the citizens that call them home.
