Filling a need for coordination between homeowner/civic associations and the government, the Federation was formed to give citizens a voice on key issues affecting them personally and to provide and enhance the opportunities for networking. How many times have you wished you had voiced an opinion on a zoning change or road construction? Where do you turn to seek advice or whom do you contact for common problems like drainage, traffic or litter?
Having a voice on these issues has a direct impact on your home’s value, and gives you an assurance that the government is providing good stewardship of your tax dollars which is administered by an all-volunteer Board of Directors.
A 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization founded November 1, 1973 as an umbrella organization for all local homeowner and civic associations, the first of its kind in the United States.
Even today, there are only a handful of organizations like the Federation of Greater Baton Rouge Civic Associations, which is administered by an all-volunteer Board of Directors.
Members are dues-paying neighborhoods and civic associations, who must be non-political.
