News from the National Association of Towns and Townships


The National Association of Towns and Townships (NATaT) was formed more than 30 years ago to:

  • provide America's smaller communities, towns and townships, and other suburban and rural localities a strong voice in Washington, DC;
  • champion fair-share federal funding decisions;
  • promote legislative and regulatory policies designed to strengthen grassroots local government; and
  • educate lawmakers and other federal officials about the unique nature of smaller local government operations as well as the need for policies that meet the special needs of suburban and non-metro communities.
