What is the National Special Districts Coalition?

The National Special Districts Coalition is the only national organization representing and advocating for all special districts at a national level.

Organized in 2018, a group of five state special districts associations in California, Colorado, Florida, Oregon, and Utah established a memorandum of understanding aimed to share resources, best practices and openly network to identify solutions to common problems for special districts across state lines. In 2021, the coalition expanded its mission to include federal advocacy for special districts to receive equitable access to critical programs available to local governments.

NSDC consists of associations, organizations, and businesses each representing and supporting special districts across the country. Uniting special districts and stakeholders as one voice, NSDC fosters strong national collaboration to strengthen and advance essential community service enhancing American communities’ quality of life.
