We are a network of 100 top-performing, high-capacity nonprofit housing developers, owners and financial institutions throughout the United States. Our shared mission is to help millions of people gain access to affordable homes and thriving communities that offer economic opportunity and an enhanced quality of life. As leaders in the field, we have built a network and a group of innovative social enterprises that deliver powerful results for the people and communities we serve. Through Housing Partnership Network, we leverage our collective talent, market power, and business innovation to achieve more together than we could acting alone.
HPN joins other industry leaders in condemning the Trump Administration’s termination of the AFFH Rule.
“Ending the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule is unacceptable and only reinforces the structural racism plaguing the housing industry and our nation as a whole” said Tom Bledsoe, CEO, Housing Partnership Network. Read the full statement here.
HPN is advocating for federal funding to address the impact of COVID-19 on affordable housing. In partnership with Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future, Enterprise Community Partners, LISC, National NeighborWorks Association, Opportunity Finance Network and other affordable housing groups, we are urging Congress to use the HOME program to address emerging affordable housing needs. A copy of our proposal can be found here.
Meanwhile, we are grateful for all of our members and partners’ tireless efforts to persevere during these hard times, and hope that all of you stay healthy and safe!
