Resident Engagement Materials & Resources

NPH and the NPH Action Fund offer resident services engagement training, resources, and support through our Resident Services cohort to ensure that our members can reach, share information with, and engage affordable housing residents in the work that impacts them directly.

The Resident Services cohort works together to design and support resident engagement strategies, including integrated voter engagement and leadership development. Improving quality of life on property and lifting up the voice of residents in advocacy is an essential component of the affordable housing industry.

This page is intended to serve as a resource hub for our resident services cohort, providing resident engagement materials, resources, and other information.

Resident Engagement Trainings!

NPH is leading a series of trainings throughout the Bay Area for Resident Services staff who are interested in learning tactics to support voter registration and education programs on site. Affordable housing resident voters are a powerful constituency and can play a critical role in affordable housing campaigns, especially in tight races that need 2/3 voter support. These trainings aim to help staff navigate the details of the ballot and tested tactics for how to best engage residents in a respectful way, working to increase voter registration and turn-out. Registration is open for the following trainings:
