National Association of Towns and Townships
The National Association of Towns and Townships (NATaT) is an American lobbying or advocacy group of officials and employees of small government units across the United States. Based in Washington, DC, it seeks to influence regulators and lawmakers about small-town government operations, and the impact of federal regulations on them.
A major second goal is to inform its members about issues, regulatory changes, and programs that affect them. There are also a series of affiliated groups that operate within a single state. These are usually located in the state capital and have a similar role.
