NHPF remains very concerned regarding the overall health and well-being of our 25,000 residents during the Covid-19 crisis. We have been actively working with our third-party management companies in taking steps such as increased cleaning of common areas, limiting resident contact except for emergency situations and, through our resident services program subsidiary Operation Pathways, providing resources for financial assistance, food, medicine, transportation, and needed supplies. In addition, we have placed a moratorium on all evictions for non-payment of rent for the duration of this crisis and are actively engaging our residents who have been financially impacted to discuss payment plans. We fully appreciate the social and emotional tolls the length of this crisis have taken on our residents and we will follow all local and state government directives regarding the reopening of our sites and community centers. The safety and well-being of our residents remains our highest priority.

Experience & Commitment

For three decades, NHPF has provided affordable housing to families and seniors.

Since our founding in 1989, NHPF has realized extraordinary achievements in the preservation and creation of value-added affordable housing, and is excited to move forward in the decades to come. Incorporated as a not-for-profit organization, NHPF operates with both a charitable mission and business-like financial discipline. Our track record from the beginning led to the preservation of 95 multi-family properties containing 17,484 affordable housing units. Building on that foundation, we currently serve more than 28,000 residents on 56 properties, providing 9,664 affordable housing units in 15 states and the District of Columbia.

Over time, NHPF has earned a reputation for solid accomplishments in:

  • Affordable Housing, delivering shelter in the form of strong communities that are clean, safe, and green;
  • Forward Thinking, creating a $50 million equity fund for the acquisition of properties to be redeveloped and preserved as tax credit properties;
  • Collaboration, proudly standing as one of 12 founding not-for-profits forming the Housing Partnership Equity Trust, an $80 million Private Real Estate Investment Trust for the acquisition and preservation of affordable housing;
  • Expanding the Portfolio through “firsts” including NHPF’s first scatter-site acquisition, Hollander Ridge, in a high-opportunity neighborhood with many amenities matching those found in for-sale properties;
  • Industry Leadership, producing three highly successful Symposia tackling critical affordable housing issues via panel discussions, presentations and opportunities for those from our industry as well as policymakers, advocates, healthcare leaders and others to engage and forge new relationships;
  • Solid Community Partnerships, offering, through The NHPF Affiliate Program, our development, financial, asset management, resident services, and fundraising support to local housing not-for-profits facing financial and organizational challenges. We also partner with state housing agencies, helping them preserve properties in their portfolios as well as develop land they own into new affordable housing;
  • Effective Resident Services, our subsidiary Operation Pathways, Inc. has been selected as the first Certified Organization for Resident Engagement & Services (CORES) by the Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future (SAHF).
