The NHP Foundation: Affordable Housing Blueprint

The NHP Foundation:  Affordable Housing Blueprint


T he NHP Foundation is a not-for-profit real estate organization dedicated to preserving and creating sustainable, service-enriched multifamily housing that is both affordable to low and moderate income families and seniors, and beneficial to their communities.


A future where communities flourish because attractive, sustainable housing options and life- enhancing services are ensured for income- challenged Americans.

THE NHP FOUNDATION’S (NHPF) mission is to preserve and produce service-enriched housing that people can afford. At NHPF we search for and implement creative solutions that act as a blueprint, providing generations to come with housing that is “more than a roof.” Today, NHPF has 57 properties in 15 states and the District of Columbia, housing over 45,000 residents. Residents in our communities are families and seniors—and we are dedicated to providing quality housing people can proudly live and thrive in—and feel part of a larger community. Through collective partnering with individuals and companies who share our goals, we have built a network of communities investing in opportunities and outcomes of residents’ lives, opening the door to brighter futures. We recently partnered with Spartanburg Housing Authority to redevelop and preserve Victoria Gardens. NHPF also acquired Cardinal Ridge Apartments, its first property in Kansas City, MO. We are also celebrating groundbreakings on two important faith-based affiliate, ground-up construction projects in Houston, TX, Temenos Place Apartments and The Citadel Apartments. NHPF is proud of several industry awards including recognition of our first single-family rental property in Baltimore, Maryland (Hollander Ridge) ; our annual Symposium via social justice honors for the video, “Unconventional Affordable Housing: Yes! In My Backyard” and others. Recent times have tried the resilience of residents and NHPF staff. When the pandemic emerged, our resident services subsidiary, Operation Pathways resolutely stepped up and immediately moved to protect vulnerable residents, providing more than 6,800 wellness checks throughout the pandemic, and food delivery and/or meals to over 5,300 residents more than 25,500 times. Our unique Affordable Housing Internship Program introduced more than two dozen young people to careers in preserving, creating, and managing affordable housing.


NHPF seeks to promote greater diversity, inclusion, racial equity, and social justice in addition to its long- established mission of providing sustainable, service-enriched affordable housing. NHPF is committed to increasing access to opportunities for historically underrepresented individuals and

businesses in the development and

operation of affordable housing communities.

NHPF’s success fills us with confidence about what we can achieve in the future.

Our History of Success

SINCE OUR FOUNDING IN 1989, NHPF has realized extraordinary achievements in the preservation and creation of value-added affordable housing. As a not- for-profit organization, NHPF operates with a charitable mission and business-like financial discipline. Our track record from the beginning has led to the preservation of more than 100 multi-family properties containing over 25,000 affordable housing units. Building on that foundation, we currently serve nearly 45,000 residents in nearly 10,000 units of affordable housing, much of which has been made possible via $729 million in development funding leveraged using Low Income Housing Tax Credits (“LIHTC”). Advances since that time include an emphasis on expanding our portfolio via the preservation and rehabilitation of a vast array of different affordable housing options including:

selected by Baltimore City Department of Housing & Community Development (DHCD) to partner on—Park Heights in Baltimore, MD, a 17-acre neighborhood redevelopment, preservation deal. NHPF is also pleased to have developed internal capacity to manage construction rather than rely on third-party consultants. Our burgeoning Construction Division is responsible for both ground-up work and rehab projects. Operation Pathways, NHPF’s resident services subsidiary, its own 501(c) (3) not-for-profit corporation consistently increases and improves our on-site resident services. Through Family-Centered Coaching, Operation Pathways engages with, and assists, families experiencing poverty and other hardship, to problem-solve together. This year, nearly 6,000 residents have participated in one or more of its programs. Operation Pathways’ children’s academics are pre- and post-tested according to the Brigance Comprehensive Inventory of Basic Skills to demonstrate that nearly 100% of children participating in our summer camps in recent years showed no signs of summer learning loss in math and reading. Additional advances include implementation of an ambitious “greening” of our properties. Currently over 75% experience vast water and energy savings with the remainder in the works. We have also converted nearly 1,000 units to new, highly-insulated roofing systems and gone smoke-free in several of our buildings.

• SRO (Single Room Occupancy) Dwellings

• Single-family Rental Homes

• RAD (Rental Assistance Demonstration) for PRAC (Project Rental Assistance Contracts) Type of Senior Properties : The new HUD program to help owners of Section 202 properties convert existing PRAC to properties subsidized with Project-Based Vouchers (PBVs) or Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) • PSH (Permanent Supportive Housing) and large scale preservation deals such as one NHPF was recently
