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.


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

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.


Legacy Leadership Fund

Become part of the Dianne J. Spaulding Legacy Leadership Fund and foster NPH’s leadership role in promoting affordable housing development, policy, advocacy and financial solutions for future decades and in providing recruitment, leadership development and capacity building within the field. We’ve raised over $400,000 so far and are well on our way to our goal of $1 million! We invite you to be part of the Fund in support of NPH.
