Welcome to the National Association of Community Development Extension Professionals

In Cooperation with JCEP


NACDEP is an organization dedicated to improving the visibility, coordination, professional status and resource base of community and economic development Extension programs and professionals.

We encourage you to share this site with your colleagues, become involved in one of our many activities, and give us your thoughts about how NACDEP can be useful to you and your colleagues. NACDEP makes no effort to proscribe what state or regional community resource and economic development programming and research look like, but rather is designed to assist those of us who deliver programming and do research under this broad umbrella to acquire and maintain the financial, political, technical and organizational resources we need to meet our objectives.
