In 2021, NPH – a longstanding NLIHC member – faced a unique set of challenges in building power for its movement while also finding a new range of opportunities.
While the San Francisco Bay Area has a strong record of housing investment, the intensity of the region’s housing challenges necessitates urgent, large-scale solutions that require action at all levels – local, state, and federal.
As the key housing advocacy organization in Nancy Pelosi’s district, NPH focused on supporting targeted, public accountability measures to move legislative leadership from broadly endorsing housing goals to championing specific provisions.
“The housing provisions in Build Back Better are a transformative opportunity,” said NPH Executive Director Amie Fishman. “They would be game-changing for Bay Area and California communities, and critical to getting community members back to work, getting and keeping people housed, and ensuring that we’re prepared for the next emergency.”
