Bay Area Housing Internship Program

Interested in a paid internship to launch your career in affordable housing?


About the program

NPH launched the Bay Area Housing Internship Program (BAHIP) in 2017. Modeled after the highly successful Rural West Internship Program of the California Coalition for Rural Housing (CCRH), BAHIP will recruit and cultivate an inclusive and diverse talent pool of affordable housing project managers. The program includes a year-long paid internship with host agencies and cohort trainings designed to increase staff diversity in the affordable housing development field, and assist in meeting the needs of communities we serve throughout the Bay Area. Students interested in Urban Studies/Community Development/Affordable Housing are encouraged to apply.

This is not the first time NPH created a program to address the issue of diversity in the affordable housing field. In 1993, under the leadership of Dianne J. Spaulding, NPH launched the Fellowship Program for People of Color in Non-Profit Housing Development, which conducted two 18-month training cycles and placed twelve fellows. NPH is excited to continue to work towards diversity, equity, and inclusion in the affordable housing industry through BAHIP and other initiatives.
