The National Urban Livelihoods Mission or NULM is an initiative by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. The primary idea behind it is to bring about a definitive reduction in poverty and to usher in the development of the urban poor.

This development would be brought about by enabling them to better means to self-employment and skilled-wage employment opportunities. This results in an improvement in the livelihoods of the urban poor on a decently sustainable scale.

The change is brought about at the grassroots level of the urban poor by linking them to the start-up revolution and the sense of entrepreneurship in India. The mission aims at providing shelter to the homeless in a phased and systematic manner.
