      Founded in 1999, the National Coalition for Asian Pacific American Community
      Development (CAPACD) is the first national organization dedicated to the
      housing, community and economic development needs of Asian American and
      Pacific Islander (AAPI) populations. Our mission is to be a powerful voice
      for the unique community development needs of AAPI communities and to
      strengthen the capacity of community-based organizations (CBOs) to create
      neighborhoods of hope and opportunity.

      We utilize four strategies to accomplish our mission: 1) Creating and
      increasing access to capacity building tools and resources; 2) Convening
      AAPI community organizations to plan, strategize and mobilize; 3)Telling our
      stories through participatory action research and policy; and 4) building
      collective leadership and creating opportunities for change agents at local
      and national levels.

      strategies and programs to address the unmet needs of AAPI CBOs engaged in
