The National Association of Towns and Townships (NATaT) was formed more than 30 years ago to provide America’s smaller communities – towns and townships – a strong voice in Washington, D.C.  NATaT’s purpose today, as it was then, is to champion fair-share federal funding decisions and to promote legislative and regulatory policies designed to strengthen grassroots local government.  Since 1976, NATaT’s staff and members have strived to educate lawmakers and other federal officials about the unique nature of small town government operations.  OTA members are also members of NATaT.


NATaT has released a federal grant guide for townships.  Learn more here.
