The National Housing Trust is the only national non-profit engaged in housing preservation through public policy advocacy, real estate development, and lending. Because of our unique approach, we have made great strides in the fight for the preservation, revitalization, and expansion of affordable housing communities across the United States. We envision a nation where federal, state and local policymakers, private owners and investors, affordable housing practitioners, and the public work together to support quality, healthy neighborhoods with a range of housing options so that families of all income levels have an opportunity to thrive.
