2022 Impact Report
Growing Power

& Securing Justice

with You!


A special note from NPH’s Executive Director

For nearly 45 years, NPH has convened and led the Bay Area’s affordable housing industry for action and impact, harnessing our collective power to advance affordable housing solutions in the Bay Area and beyond.

Today, as I look back on our 2022 together, it has never been more clear that our victories come down to one key ingredient: you!

Together, we accomplished no small thing in 2022. From enacting transformative legislation, like AB 2011, the Affordable Housing and High Road Jobs Act; to passing several critical housing ballot measures and defeating some harmful ones; to working with our members to gear up for an exciting 2024 electoral strategy that has the potential to completely change the game for affordable housing in the Bay Area. NPH also launched our new Anti-Racist Champions of Change (ARCC) program to lift up the next generation of senior and executive BIPOC leaders.

At the core, all of these accomplishments, achieved alongside NPH members, were orchestrated through strategic partnerships, working across broad sectors, and an understanding that a power-building, movement-oriented approach is what moves the needle for our housing and racial justice priorities.

Together, we can achieve anything.

As I look ahead to 2023, I’m taking three lessons I’ve gained from our 2022 together: first, winning takes time. We did not arrive at our successes overnight; it has taken years of cultivating cross-coalition partnerships, stepping outside of our comfort zones, and embracing compromise with allies across various sectors with different priorities. We’re in this work for the long haul, strategizing for sustained and long-lasting transformation that shifts attitudes, beliefs, and systems.

Second, people are hungry for change and opportunity is in the air. Housing and homelessness rank as the primary areas of concern for Bay Area and California voters, with this interest reflected in the 2022 election cycle seeing over 50 housing measures on the ballot across California. This appetite for housing solutions signals a key moment for our affordable housing movement to ramp up our efforts, offering the smart, forward-thinking policies and investments that voters are hungry for right now. Now is the time to make the case for fulfilling our housing needs, at scale, so that every person and every family in our communities can prosper, thrive, and live in dignity.

Third, we must lead with our values. Politics can be fickle, and as artist and organizer, Favianna Rodriguez, so succinctly noted at the 43rd NPH Affordable Housing Conference, “values unite, while issues divide.” In a moment of content overload and political fatigue, we’re leading with our values of equity, justice, and community to reach hearts and change minds.

As we gear up for 2023, let’s take a moment to reflect on our wins and progress in this annual Impact Report. Looking ahead, NPH will keep doing what we do best: convening our members for strategy and impact and advocating for bold, transformative solutions, reinventing our approach as the moment calls for. There is only one thing we need to keep doing this critical work: you. We need you to keep showing up, working alongside us, and maintaining faith in our movement. Thank you for being here and I can’t wait to see what we accomplish together in 2023 and beyond.

Amie Fishman
NPH Executive Director

Policy & Advocacy

Advancing bold and effective housing solutions for today and generations to come

In a Nutshell, What We Do

NPH’s policy work is led with a simple value: in order to thrive as a society, every person – no matter their race, gender, income, or background – needs to have a stable, affordable, and safe place to call home. To achieve this, we must advance smart, inclusive, and forward-thinking solutions that can address our communities’ affordable housing needs, at scale. Each year, the NPH policy team works toward these solutions at the regional, state, federal, and regulatory levels, advocating for legislation and investments that can produce, protect, and preserve housing now and for years to come.

Regional Policy

Regional Policy

We believe that our regional challenges deserve a regional approach, which is why we’re working to secure a strong, comprehensive approach to address the Bay Area’s housing shortage with bold plans and programs that hold local cities and counties accountable. In 2022, we laid critical groundwork for transformational electoral strategy in the years ahead, gearing up for regional ballot measures and more.

Bay Area Housing Finance Authority (BAHFA)

Alongside our partners, NPH engaged in state budget advocacy efforts that led to the Bay Area Housing Finance Authority (BAHFA) becoming fully staffed and positioned to launch 5 pilot programs, building momentum for 2024 state and regional campaigns. BAHFA is a regional body created from NPH co-sponsored legislation in 2019 and designed to raise revenue in the region for affordable housing and homelessness solutions through ballot measures.

Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Working Groups

In 2022, NPH launched two new PSH workgroups designed to evaluate PSH efficacy and efficiency and develop an advocacy agenda toward PSH solutions in the Bay Area. PSH is a promising solution for people who experience chronic homelessness and other related challenges. In alignment with NPH’s commitment to homelessness solutions that are holistic and long-term, NPH’s PSH Working Groups convene to strategize toward the development of PSH in the Bay Area, working to: understand the full costs of providing PSH; generate consensus on best practices; and develop a collective advocacy agenda to improve the PSH ecosystem for consumers and developers/owners.

Transformational Electoral Strategy for 2024

Working closely with our Bay Area Housing for All (BAHA) coalition partners and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), and the Bay Area Housing Finance Authority (BAHFA), we’ve laid critical groundwork for transformational electoral strategy in November 2024. If successful, our 2024 initiative will dramatically shift how we can generate local funds to build more affordable housing and homelessness solutions, creating structural change and unlocking billions of dollars in the Bay Area and around the state. The strategy is to pursue a statewide constitutional amendment to lower the voter threshold for housing bonds to a simple majority and expand eligible uses of funding to address local needs, while simultaneously pursuing a $10-20 billion regional housing bond measure for the Bay Area. To achieve these ambitious goals, we are building a unified “big tent” coalition of partners from across the state.

NPH Event Highlight

During Affordable Housing Month in May, NPH hosted with our Bay Area Affordable Housing Partners (BAAHP) (NPH’s grassroots advocacy partners working at the city and county level across the Bay Area to maximize regional collaboration) Housing, Race and Homelessness: Ending Poverty in the Bay Area, bringing over 200 people together for a deep dive discussion between former Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs and All Home CEO Tomiquia Moss on the ways that housing instability is interconnected with racial inequality, poverty, and homelessness. The event concluded with an expert panel equipping attendees on ways we can move from principles and concepts to concrete next steps.

State Policy

State Policy

Overall, our focus was to deliver reforms and investments, at scale, that prioritize people first. The results? We’ve secured critical wins and have built the momentum needed to keep advancing our agenda into 2023.

State Budget

NPH worked in close collaboration with our affordable housing and homelessness colleagues to advocate for a strategic set of budget priorities. While the final state budget for 2022-23 included a total of $2 billion for affordable housing and homelessness solutions, this investment falls short when compared with the state’s historic surplus and what is needed to match our communities’ housing needs. NPH continued to lay critical groundwork for renewed budget advocacy efforts ahead for the 2023-24 state budget.


NPH supported AB 2011 author Assemblymember Buffy Wicks and bill co-sponsors California Housing Consortium and California Carpenters in passing this transformative legislation that has been in the works for several years. AB 2011 pairs new opportunities to build affordable housing on underutilized commercial sites with unprecedented labor standards that ensure all construction workers earn prevailing wages and receive health benefits. Additionally, we’ve laid necessary groundwork for continued work on critical affordable housing bills that remain in progress as well as strategy to implement others that passed into law. We know firsthand that the transformation of our housing infrastructure will take time and we’re here for the long haul of our collective work.

AB 2011: A New Era for Affordable Housing

The importance of AB 2011’s passage cannot be overstated. This transformative bill solves what has been a major source of affordable housing construction gridlock in California over the last several years, bringing much-needed relief and decisive action to our communities! Read more in our op-ed via Medium.

Regulatory Policy

Regulatory Policy

NPH’s regulatory program helps ensure that critical affordable housing policies and solutions are implemented effectively and fairly in order to create significant impact for our Bay Area communities.

New Rules for Major Affordable Housing Source

NPH spearheaded advocacy efforts alongside our members and legislators that led to California’s Tax Credit Allocation Committee (TCAC) implementing new rules guiding the awards for 4% tax-exempt bonds, a major source of funding for affordable housing production. These new rules reward the multifaceted public benefits created by mission-driven developers – instead of simply judging them by the number of units generated.

Supporting the Needs of Nonprofit Developers!

NPH led efforts to solicit feedback and deliver comments around improving several state programs that impact the work of Bay Area affordable housing developers. Specifically, we convened our members to coordinate comments for the SuperNOFA, Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities Program (AHSC), and Surplus Land Act. The outcome was streamlined application processes and updated guidelines to simplify and improve the work of nonprofit developers. This work is a part of ongoing efforts to continually improve state agency processes for affordable housing developers.

Federal Policy

Federal Policy

From coordinating local elected officials to spearheading sign-on letters, NPH seizes the opportunity to advocate on the federal level for affordable housing throughout the nation.

Advocating for Housing in Year-End Tax Bill

NPH coordinated efforts with members, partner organizations, and local and state elected officials to urge Democratic leadership to support a lowered bond test in any year-end tax bill, which would eliminate bottlenecks to affordable housing production and unlock approximately $3 billion dollars in additional funding for affordable housing in California alone. NPH will continue to aggressively pursue the rule changes needed at the federal level to ensure more affordable housing funding and development.

Campaigns & Community Engagement

Building momentum toward homes for all with electoral campaigns, resident engagement, and voter outreach

In a Nutshell, What We Do

NPH and our sister organization, NPH Action Fund, (dedicated to advancing ballot measure campaigns and electoral strategies) work to support and take action on a variety of smart and forward-thinking affordable housing and homelessness measures. We also work with our members to go even deeper in these efforts, identifying and securing placement of critical affordable housing policies and funding measures at the ballot, giving voters the ability to take action toward the creation of more affordable homes across the Bay Area. Additionally, we provide advocacy support through affordable housing resident voter registration materials, outreach support, and in particular, through our partnership with resident services staff, offering professional development programming, resources, and trainings that are designed to grow their engagement and impact.

Community Advocacy & Voter Engagement (CAVE) Certification Program

Community Advocacy & Voter Engagement (CAVE) Certification Program

CAVE is a professional development training series providing comprehensive voter engagement and advocacy training support to resident services staff and others who provide direct service in the affordable housing industry. In 2022, CAVE launched its fourth and fifth cohorts, where NPH supported and trained participants to advance resident empowerment and civic participation at their organizations.

Impact by the Numbers

To date, NPH’s Community Advocacy & Voter Engagement (CAVE) Certification Program has certified 95 resident services staff and other direct service providers. Through CAVE, these staff have gained strategies for creating a culture and practice of advocacy within their affordable housing communities, empowering residents to participate in elections and policy outcomes that directly impact their lives.

Data for Housing Justice!

Data for Housing Justice!

NPH worked with the Regional Suburban Organizing Project (RSOP), which engages organizations to support the growth of organizing capacity for housing justice in the suburbs, to create a voter data analysis tool. This tool will enable us to launch strategic and targeted communications and outreach all toward the goal of advancing housing justice at the ballot box in 2024 and beyond.

Success at the Ballot Box

Success at the Ballot Box

Our biggest affordable housing win this past election cycle was the passage of Oakland’s Measure U, a transformative measure that will bring in $350M, without raising taxes, to create housing for working families, essential workers, and Oaklanders experiencing homelessness. Measure U does this equitably—by prioritizing the neighborhoods in Oakland with the most need.

Racial Equity & Inclusion

Enacting solutions that are rooted in racial equity and economic justice, with the goal of building inclusive, thriving communities that embrace belonging for everyone

In a Nutshell, What We Do

NPH is proud to embed racial equity and inclusion into all of our work, as we work to advance racial justice as an organization as well as promote it throughout the broader affordable housing movement. This work includes promoting public policies that seek to address the Bay Area’s discriminatory housing policies as well as developing comprehensive and innovative programs designed to center racial equity and inclusion in our organization as well as our industry.

Bay Area Housing Internship Program (BAHIP)

Bay Area Housing Internship Program (BAHIP)

NPH is committed to doing our part in diversifying the affordable housing industry and BAHIP is one such effort. BAHIP is a one-year, paid internship program designed to recruit and train low-income students of color at Bay Area colleges and universities to become housing development professionals. The goal of BAHIP is to advance leaders of color in our industry, remove common barriers to opportunity, and support a robust pipeline of professional and diverse leaders to strengthen our industry. In 2022, BAHIP:

  • graduated our fourth cohort, comprised of 7 interns;
  • kicked off the first half of its fifth cohort, comprised of 9 interns;
  • conducted 25 technical and soft skills trainings for interns; and
  • hosted a retreat, mixer, and meet & greet lunch.

BAHIP Makes a Difference

Since BAHIP’s inception in 2018, 36 interns graduated the program, with 86% of program graduates continuing in equity-focused and community-driven work: 64% employed in non-profit affordable housing development, 22% in related fields or pursued graduate education.

Anti-Racist Champions of Change (ARCC)

Anti-Racist Champions of Change (ARCC)

Launched in 2022 but a result of many years of listening, discussing, and developing, ARCC offers a one-year immersive experience for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) managers and their executive-level leaders working in nonprofit affordable housing development. ARCC is for industry leaders who are ready to see their organization at the forefront of change and are committed to dismantling oppressive power dynamics in the affordable housing field. Our first-year cohort included 11 BIPOC managers and 3 executive partners representing two core NPH member organizations: MidPen Housing and Mercy Housing.

A Unique Program for a Unique Need

In 2021, NPH launched a year-long engagement, planning, and design process with members and industry leaders in order to prepare for the first cohort of the Anti-Racist Champions of Change (ARCC) leadership development and organizational change program. We heard from BIPOC leaders and their allies about what they saw as barriers that BIPOC people face in their leadership and career growth as well as the impact it has on our collective vision of homes for all. Equipped with this feedback, NPH launched ARCC in 2022, a program that challenges us to re-examine how to share power in ways that foster authentic leadership across positions and throughout an organization.

Racial Equity & Inclusion Statement

Racial Equity & Inclusion Statement

After many years of work within NPH and throughout our member organizations to cultivate and deepen our approach to racial equity and inclusion, we put pen to paper to consider why and how we're approaching this work. The result of this process was our Racial Equity Statement. Our Racial Equity Statement affirms our staunch commitment to diversity and inclusion in our organization, our policy advocacy and campaign work, our membership base, throughout the affordable housing industry, and society at large.

Why Housing Justice Is Racial Justice

Shamefully, our nation’s history is one predicated on slavery, genocide, and the aftermath of these inhumane harms. And to this day, the side effects reverberate throughout the country and particularly in our housing infrastructure. This is why NPH embeds racial equity and inclusion into all of our work, aiming to advance racial justice as an organization as well as promote it throughout the broader affordable housing movement, with an ultimate goal of transformation at the structural and societal levels.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Working Group

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Working Group

With representation across 40 member organizations, this group meets monthly as part of three subcommittees to share best practices, develop industry standards, and build a movement to advance racial equity & inclusion in three key areas: contracting practices, hiring & retention, and lending.

Events & Other Programs

Growing our industry’s capacity, fostering community, and working collaboratively toward housing and racial justice

In a Nutshell, What We Do

As a lead convener of the affordable housing movement in the Bay Area, NPH plays a central role in bringing our industry together through timely events and programming. Our offerings are designed to grow power; advance housing and racial justice as a collective voice; and keep our movement connected, informed, and impactful.

The Largest Affordable Housing Conference in the Bay Area

The Largest Affordable Housing Conference in the Bay Area

In 2022, NPH hosted our highly anticipated 43rd Annual Affordable Housing Conference in person for the first time since 2019, bringing together over 1,000 affordable housing practitioners for networking, learning, and knowledge sharing. The conference featured 21 timely workshops spanning hot topics in affordable housing development, racial equity, and advocacy all toward the goals of addressing and overcoming industry challenges and strengthening the affordable housing movement in the Bay Area.

Conference Keynote: A Bigger Tent: The Need for Cross-Sector Allies Now

The keynote address examined the need for affordable housing practitioners to cross-collaborate and build strong coalitions now, showing lawmakers and the public how housing intersects other social issues such as racial equity, health, art, culture, and immigrant rights. Keynote speaker, artist, and organizer Favianna Rodriguez reminded us that "values unite" while "issues divide", urging us to center our values and highlighting the power of culture over politics to do this job for us. Other speakers included PICO California Executive Director Joseph Tomás Mckellar; Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiatives (BARHII) Executive Director Melissa Jones; and discussion moderator Nelson Layag, Principal at Layag Associates, Inc.

Celebrating Our Movement with Leadership Awards

Celebrating Our Movement with Leadership Awards

Every year NPH recognizes inspiring leaders in our field who have worked to strengthen our affordable housing movement and advanced our work forward with innovation, collaboration, and inclusiveness. In 2022, we held our 26th Annual NPH Affordable Housing Leadership Awards virtually, recognizing Jan Lindenthal (MidPen Housing) with the Inspirational Non-Profit Leader Award; Sonya Freeman and Bernadine Martin (Eden Housing) with the Regional Advocacy Leader Award; and Scott Barshay (Gubb & Barshay LLP) with the Catherine A. Bauer Lifetime Achievement Award.

Growing Capacity, Deepening Connections

Growing Capacity, Deepening Connections

NPH events and programs aim to cover the many needs and latest developments of our industry. Other key programming includes:

Brown Bag Training Series

Each year, our Brown Bag slate offers exciting opportunities for dialogue around some of affordable housing’s most timely topics, including a state budget overview, lessons learned from the housing elements process, and more.

Emerging Leaders Peer Network (ELPN)

One of NPH’s most engaged programs among member organization staff, ELPN offers a full slate of events and trainings each year designed to develop up-and-coming housers’ expertise and knowledge across all sectors of the affordable housing field. In 2022, opportunities included a return to in-person happy hours; trainings on insurance 101, loan docs, and affordable homeownership; and the second year of our Breakfast with the Boss series, a breakout success of one-on-one conversations with affordable housing leaders.

Resident Services Professional Development Training Series

NPH is committed to providing deep support to those who work directly with affordable housing residents (see above “Community Advocacy & Voter Engagement (CAVE) Certification Program”). These sessions cover areas most relevant to these staff, such as self-care practices and trauma-informed care, and provide space for peer learning and sharing.

We Are Stronger Together: NPH Member Community

Our members represent thousands of individuals and hundreds of organizations, including affordable housing developers, advocates, community leaders, businesses, and others working in the Bay Area’s affordable housing sector and movement.

Narrative Strategy

Seizing the narrative on housing justice to change hearts and minds, grow public support and political will, and drive new narratives for our movement

In a Nutshell, What We Do

NPH leads the Shift the Bay initiative, a collaborative effort designed to grow public support for our cause through research-driven, field-practiced strategies, tactics, and messages. Over the course of several years, the initiative has supported the Bay Area’s affordable housing movement with new message guides and tools, new research, and the production of the Seize the Narrative Playbook, which offers concrete guidance on how to advance housing and racial justice, locally and regionally.

Advancing Narrative Strategy Together: NPH Staff & Members

Advancing Narrative Strategy Together: NPH Staff & Members

Working closely with the NPH-led Shift the Bay initiative, NPH programs and members gained pro-housing messaging strategies designed to amplify shared values, tell stories of impact, and build the public will needed to advance housing and racial justice in the Bay Area:

How to Talk about Affordable Housing

NPH’s Shift the Bay provided narrative guidance to our 2022-23 Bay Area Housing Internship Program (BAHIP), equipping them with strategies for community meetings, funding proposals, making public comment, and more. The initiative also worked with the multi-sector Great Communities Collaborative's Public Lands Working Group and our policy team to determine core narrative opportunities in advocating for publicly-owned land for affordable housing.

Winning Messages for the Election Cycle

In partnership with Bay Rising, NPH’s Strategic Communications Council, and Shift the Bay, we presented Electoral Communications (C3 Approved!), sharing how c3 nonprofits can legally engage in advocacy within their unique capacities and roles to activate our base as well as new housing champions, by positioning housing as urgent, actionable, and a pathway to liberation and justice.

Affordable Housing Month: Experimental Narrative Campaign

Affordable Housing Month: Experimental Narrative Campaign

Through an Affordable Housing Month ad campaign in partnership with United Way Bay Area, we developed an experimental narrative campaign to show the connection between housing and other priority issues, such as health, education, and the environment. We reached more than 200,000 Bay Area residents multiple times to educate, motivate, and mobilize, and activated individuals to contact their local representative to champion housing in the State Budget May Revise. Supporters who took action were sent an affordable housing sticker to create a base of visual support for Affordable Housing Month and build resonance for housing justice.

Narrative Research and Strategy for Housing Elements

Narrative Research and Strategy for Housing Elements

The Housing Elements process is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to address local housing shortages, invest in our communities, and create better housing options for all. In 2022, we partnered with advocates, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), and local city staff to create a regional message and engagement approach. This approach was geared toward energizing and mobilizing community members to participate in the Housing Elements process and resulted in greater partnership between MTC/ABAG and advocates, diversified participant voices, and the centering of solutions-oriented framing to advance housing and racial justice.

Supporting Advocates with Timely Tools: Housing Elements

NPH utilized Shift the Bay research and partners to develop a suite of Housing Element resources for advocates designed to educate, engage, and mobilize community members across the Bay Area. These included a Housing Elements Effective Messaging Guide; Housing Elements Organizing Toolkit; and a series of trainings on the message guide: Housing Elements: Effective Messaging Training; Digital Organizing Tools and Tactics Training; and Moving the People who Move Housing Policy Workshop.

Working in Coalition: Narrative Implementation and Impact

Working in Coalition: Narrative Implementation and Impact

Led by NPH, the Shift the Bay initiative hosts an 18-organization table that works in partnership with us toward messaging and narrative implementation, impact, and transformation. Throughout the year, we convene and research together on a variety of narrative-related topics, strengthening our coalition through education and coaching opportunities. Some of our work together in 2022 includes:

Seeding New Narratives

Shift the Bay supports our table organizations with targeted implementation of our timely messaging and narrative research, resourcing their individual narrative projects that put our regional research into action.

Research, Test, Evaluate

Through case studies, focus groups, field/media analysis, and more, we worked with our table to learn, refine, and repeat, continuing to adapt our work to what’s changing and needed in transformative narrative shift work.

The Payoff: Public Information Campaign 2023-24

We’ve strengthened and grown partnerships in order to support the final strategic prong of our narrative strategy: a coordinated, regional public information campaign to grow resonance and strengthen support for housing and racial justice in the Bay Area. In 2022, we laid the groundwork for a 2023-24 campaign strategy designed to scale our findings with the goal to align values across our regional narrative ecosystem, fire up our base, and activate passive supporters/bystanders toward affordable housing solutions.
