It’s Official: 3 Big Wins for Bay Area Affordable Housing

Congratulations! Bay Area Voters say YES to Affordable Housing

A statement from NPH Executive Director Amie Fishman

 

We are so excited to share that the Santa Clara County Measure A for Affordable Housing campaign has confirmed victory with the latest vote tally from Elections.

 

We now have a decided victory in all three of the Bay Area county measures that NPH helped to initiate and support, bringing greatly needed investment to provide local, affordable homes for our community members, especially those most at risk of homelessness and displacement.

 

In a time of deep division in our nation, affordable housing has shown itself to be a true issue of unity. This November, voters overwhelmingly got behind the idea of helping our friends, neighbors, and families. (See NPH’s elections analysis here.)

 

We secured more than $2 billion in investments for our communities; but beyond numbers, we recognize what these policies mean for protecting and preserving the Bay Area that we love. We’re building a future where everyone has a place to call home, including those who have been historically displaced, marginalized, and excluded. 

 

These measures are a testament to our community’s ability to work together to continue moving down the path of solutions and compassion. 

 

We are so proud that our movement is on the right side of history – No matter what else comes out of Election Day results, our efforts are part of the national movement for inclusion, compassion, equity, social justice, and for a society that takes care of our most vulnerable. We will never stop fighting for these beliefs.

 

Sincerely,

 

Amie Fishman, NPH Executive Director

VISION

NPH sees a future where everyone has a place to call home and where low-income communities and communities of color stay and prosper in the Bay Area. We envision a day where everyone has access to an affordable home; improving our health, our children’s educational outcomes, our environment, our transit system, our regional competitiveness and keeping the Bay Area diverse and equitable.

MISSION

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.

Join a Working Group

Legislative Issues

Formed in 1983, the NPH Legislative Issues Committee discusses issues related to housing policy, funding, and programs on the regional, state, and federal levels, and makes preliminary recommendations to guide and inform NPH’s position on each issue. This group meets the first Thursday of each month, typically from 9:30 – 11:30 am. At times, the committee meets for a longer period of time to accommodate longer agenda items, such as reviewing bills and establishing legislative priorities. For more information please contact Michael Lane, NPH Policy Director at michael@nonprofithousing.org.

The Emerging Leaders Peer Network

ELPN fosters members’ long-term personal and professional development, and helps build connections that support the affordable housing industry. Join us as an emerging leader and develop your passion for affordable housing!

Ad Hoc Working Groups

In cases where certain legislative, regulatory or policy issues require more in-depth attention than the Legislative Issues Committee can provide, ad hoc committees are formed to work with staff in a more focused manner. NPH is currently running an ad hoc TCAC Working Group and will be launching local and regional Housing Action Teams, as well as a Strategic Communications Council in 2016.
