There is already a partner in my city, can my organization still join?

We recognize that regions have many organizations doing good work with neighborhood data - whether visualization, analysis, or technical assistance for the community groups.

In general, the NNIP model is that our designated partner disseminates lessons from their participation in the NNIP network to its local collaborators.  We encourage people interested in building local tools and capacity around neighborhood data to reach out to the existing partner to discuss the potential for collaboration.

In a few cases, two or more organizations have applied jointly to join NNIP when they serve unique roles that combined fulfill the partnership requirements.
