National Training and Information Center

National Training and Information Center

The National Training and Information Center (NTIC) was founded in Chicago, IL in 1972 as a national policy, research, and training center for communities who were tired of seeing their neighborhoods torn apart by federal housing foreclosures and bank redlining.[1]

Founded by Gale Cincotta, a housewife and mother of six, and Shel Trapp, a former Methodist Minister, the work of NTIC grew out of a belief that everyday people are the experts on the challenges they face and that strong neighborhoods form the foundation of a strong country.[2] NTIC is associated with National People's Action.

NTIC's history is grounded in holding members of both political parties, and corporations, accountable for the impact that their decisions have on communities across the country.
