A People Powered Movement

NPH has a strong record of success initiating, supporting, and passing affordable housing ballot measures and we’re proud to continue building momentum through our work with the NPH Action Fund.

We have been hard at work in many cities, counties, and at the state level, working to support our mission to ensure that everyone has access to a safe, stable, affordable home. We provide research, policy analysis, and expertise accrued from our prior electoral successes in order to help secure placement of critical affordable housing policies and funding at the ballot and give voters the ability to take action.

Member & Coalition Resources

NPH and the NPH Action Fund partner to bring critical resources to support our members in advocacy and campaigns, including resident voter registration and engagement, campaign message trainings, and more.
