NHT Launches new Programs for Residents as part of Covid Response  8.10.2020

Since the pandemic hit in March, NHT continues to work hard to meet the needs of our residents.

Over the last 5 months, NHT launched several programs in direct response to the pandemic.

HUD Disregards Public Comments & Plans to Undermine Fair Housing 8.6.2020

NHT is Committed to Promoting Racial Justice through Housing, Resilience and Opportunity. 6.12.2020

The National Housing Trust stands in solidarity with Black Americans demanding an end to racial injustice. We remember those that have lost their lives to racial violence: Emmett Till, Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland, among many. We are saddened to commit more names to memory: George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor. Racism is real and it’s long past time to confront the racial disparities that exist in all parts of our society, including housing. Black lives matter.
