Following a decade of research and writings concerning local small businesses and communities, National Commonwealth Group has developed The Sustainable Communities Framework, a comprehensive strategy to help local communities take control of their local economies. By implementing our program, communities can quickly bootstrap their economies into prosperity. 

To get this tool into the hands of communities worldwide, we look forward to working with individuals and groups interested in helping us with our efforts or launching their own.


The MONEY page outlines the fundamentals that inform our strategy and implementation plans.

The CORPORATE VEHICLES section, and articles that describe Commonwealth Development Organizations, Public Benefit Financial Institutions and Small Business Holding Companies, lays out the key building blocks necessary to implement our overall strategy.
