National Mitigation Banking Association

Home » About



The National Mitigation Banking Association (NMBA) is proud to continue bringing together leaders who are committed to restoring and conserving America’s wetlands, streams, habitats and other resources – a concept that unites sound economic and environmental practices.

First established in 1998, the Association promotes federal legislation, regulatory policy and education that encourage advanced compensatory mitigation as a means to offsetting adverse impacts to our nation’s environment.

This commitment is fulfilled through a variety of research, education, and outreach sponsored by the NMBA and available exclusively to its members.

These are exciting but rapidly changing times in the industry and NMBA has been hard at work on the regulatory and policy front.  We have been working diligently on the kinds of policy issues that will bring meaningful value to our industry.

We hope that you and your business, organization or non-profit will become part of the important work of NMBA.
