The Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California (NPH) activates our members to make the Bay Area a place where everyone has an affordable and stable home. We are 750 affordable housing developers, advocates, community leaders and businesses, working to secure resources, promote good policy, educate the public and support affordable homes as the foundation for thriving individuals, families and neighborhoods.
What We Do
Since 1979, NPH has been the collective voice of those who support, build and finance affordable housing. NPH promotes the proven methods of the non-profit sector and focuses government policy on housing solutions for low-income people who suffer disproportionately from the housing crisis. We do not build nor develop affordable housing; we support our members to build, develop, and preserve affordable housing. NPH has been instrumental in strengthening the local, regional and statewide movement on affordable housing and supportive services. Over the last three decades, NPH membership has grown steadily to include individual activists, local governments, affordable housing developers, leading financial institutions, community development organizations, environmental non-profits, and faith-based organizations. In addition to our legislative advocacy work, NPH offers technical assistance, public policy development, professional training, networking opportunities, and resources for housing policy analysts, advocates and activists. NPH is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit public benefit corporation of California.
