Interested in becoming a NASP member?
NASP Membership is available to any home and community-based organizations providing services and supports to people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) services in Nebraska.
All NASP members must meet the standards for certification and accreditation to contract with the State of Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.
If you or your organization are not I/DD service providers but share a similar mission or would like to develop a mutually beneficial working relationship with our members, consider becoming a Related Industry or Strategic Business Partner.
Our Related Industry Partners are organizations or public entities who share similar missions, visions and goals. This partnership is an opportunity to become more positive agents of change, support community providers across the state of Nebraska, and join the quest to help the people they serve lead more fulfilling lives.
Our Strategic Business Partners are businesses that offer products and services vital to home and community-based Service providers. NASP members look for products and services that build efficiencies, support business operations and enhance service quality. Strategic Business Partners are private entities which do not receive state or federal reimbursement for service delivery. A Strategic Business Partnership with NASP offers exclusive opportunities to connect with and market to NASP members throughout the year.

Engagement & Networking
As a NASP member, you’ll network with colleagues from across the state via monthly meetings, specialized subcommittees, and legislative advocacy events. These connections provide cross-learning and problem-solving opportunities that will propel your organization forward. Together, we develop the 'best practices' that enable us all to work more efficiently and effectively.
NASP provides timely communication of relevant industry news and events. NASP maintains a strong network of media and legislative relationships to ensure members are informed and educated. These relationships also provide opportunities to engage with key decision makers and industry experts.
Regulatory & Legislative Information
NASP ensures that members are aware of regulatory changes and happenings prior to their implementation and that members have input on any potential changes; we proactively push for strong policy in Nebraska. Leadership from the Division of Developmental Disabilities attends our monthly member meetings to provide updates and answer questions face to face.
NASP is a direct line of communication between Providers and Policymakers. State legislators regularly reach out to NASP and vice versa for critical information and solutions on relevant policy. NASP collects and collates input from service providers when crafting communications with key stakeholders. Together, we can advocate with one powerful voice. Individual members wanting to take further action are invited to join our Legislative Subcommittee, in which we combine forces with organizational lobbyists, to put passion and personal testimonials to work on industry-related legislation.
NASP provides many industry-specific opportunities for professional growth, including online training, onsite education, regional training and conferences. Regardless of distance, all providers have access to cutting-edge learning.
