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.
A note from our CEO: HPN Emphatically Affirms That Black Lives Matter
It is a somber time in America as yet another black man, George Floyd, is memorialized and buried after dying at the hands of law enforcement. The Housing Partnership Network stands strongly with the African American community in condemning the senseless, tragic and racist murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor. These events have generated angry protests around our nation and world against the systemic racism in police departments and the broader society that underlies these horrific acts. We emphatically affirm that Black Lives Matter and strongly support and join with those who peacefully protest against this ingrained racism, which has been part of America since its founding and persists today.

COVID-19 Crisis - A note from HPN
In these extremely challenging times of COVID-19, HPN is more dedicated than ever to helping strengthen the non-profit affordable housing sector, and to support our members and their residents in every way possible. We will continue to provide opportunities for member exchange, and to work for resources that can help provide relief from the impact of COVID-19 on our communities including affordable housing and their owners. 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!
We are advocating for federal funding to address the impact of COVID-19 on affordable housing. HPN 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 are urging Congress to use the HOME program to address emerging affordable housing needs. A copy of our proposal can be found here.
