The mission of the NFBPA is embodied in the organization's commitment to strengthen the position of Blacks within the field of public administration by increasing the number of Blacks appointed to executive positions in public service organizations; and to groom and prepare younger aspiring administrators for senior public management posts in the years ahead.

The NFBPA mission is realized through the pursuit of the following important goals:

To serve as a magnet organization for linking, public, private and academic institutions into an effective network to support interdisciplinary communications, management innovation and professional development among Blacks choosing public service careers. 

To provide intensive and rigorous training in critical management areas in response to the specialized needs of Black public sector professionals. 

To identify and groom younger, emerging Black administrators and provide relevant exposure to the challenges and rewards of public service careers. 

To promote, strengthen and expand the roles of Blacks in all aspects of public administration.
