RICHARD BURNS President & Chief Executive, NHPF
LAST YEAR’S INAUGURAL NHPF SYMPOSIUM & DINNER explored the “Pay for Success” model to fund affordable housing. We brought together industry leaders, academics and lawmakers to exchange ideas, celebrate achievements and look for creative strategies to continue our mission of providing quality, service-enriched housing for low to middle income Americans.
The event was followed by a year of federal tax code reform, partisan bickering, and a shakeup of the healthcare landscape. The impact has resonated across public and private sectors, sparking a desire within our organization to bring great minds together once again to educate, engage, and design the future of our industry. This year’s Symposium & Dinner, “Housing & Health: The Backbone of Strong Communities,” examines the burgeoning intersection of housing and health. We’re looking to break down silos between different industries by inviting key healthcare representatives, investors, affordable housing developers, policymakers and social service providers to join us in realizing our goal of an affordable housing paradigm shift. This reboot will result from an empirical, beta-tested link between people living in safe, stable, affordable housing, and improved health outcomes. We will discuss a variety of ideas and strategies, including a new funding model for privatized housing vouchers. The goal is better lives for residents and sound investments for funders. We are extremely pleased that this year’s event has been met with such a tremendous response. We are grateful for our 70 sponsors and over 300 attendees. Thank you. Your support is especially important as The NHP Foundation embarks on its 30th year preserving and creating affordable housing for economically challenged Americans. While 2019 promises to be a year of opportunities and challenges, NHPF will continue its mission to provide residents with housing that is “more than a roof,” borne of dynamic new ideas and collaborative efforts. In closing, I’d like to say that the relationships which The NHP Foundation nurtures are among our greatest assets, and our accomplishments are your accomplishments. We look forward to your continued support and guidance. Please enjoy this evening’s program and accept our utmost appreciation for being here with us.

Affordable Housing Trailblazer Award Honoree REPRESENTATIVE CARLOS CURBELO
The new lead Republican on the House version of the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act, Representative Curbelo was elected to represent the people of Florida’s 26th Congressional District in 2014. During his first term, Carlos fought for common sense solutions and worked with Republicans and Democrats to improve the quality of life for the people of South Florida. Carlos was reelected in 2016 and is now in his second term and serving on the prestigious House Committee on Ways and
Means, which took the lead on tax reform. Representative Curbelo has also worked on behalf of affordable housing with House colleagues to co-sponsor the bipartisan Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act (H.R. 1661), stating that the legislation “will make the Housing Credit more flexible, simplify program requirements, support the preservation of existing affordable housing, facilitate Housing Credit development in challenging markets and for hard-to-reach populations, and institute other modifications to make the Credit an even more effective program.”

REPRESENTATIVE SUZAN DELBENE
Congresswoman Suzan DelBene represents Washington’s First Congressional District. First sworn into the House of Representatives in 2012, Suzan brings a unique voice to the nation’s capital, with more than two decades of experience as a successful technologwy entrepreneur and business leader. Suzan currently serves on the House Ways and Means Committee, which is at the forefront of debate on taxes, healthcare and retirement security. There, Suzan is working to ensure
all Americans have meaningful access to affordable, quality healthcare. She is also prepared to fight against attempts to dismantle Medicare, repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and slash Social Security benefits, all of which help millions of families. Instead of these dangerous proposals, Suzan believes Congress should build on the progress made by incentivizing high-quality patient care, reducing costs for small businesses and expanding access for our most vulnerable populations. The congresswoman also led members of the Washington state delegation representing King County in introducing the Access to Affordable Housing Act to increase the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) by 50 percent, which could result in as many as 400,000 more affordable housing units developed over 10 years. She also serves on the House Ways and Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over tax issues, and is a cosponsor of the bipartisan Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act, a comprehensive bill to strengthen the LIHTC by providing states flexibility and encouraging development in rural communities.

RYAN MOSER Vice President, Strategy & Impact, CSH (Corporation for Supportive Housing) Ryan Moser, M Ed, Pennsylvania State University, is an innovator and futurist grounded by twenty years of experience in housing, justice, health and human services, education and international development. Currently the Vice President
for Strategy and Impact at CSH, Mr. Moser is responsible for CSH’s Data & Analytics, Strategic Alignment, and Impact Investment portfolios. Ryan’s presentation on housing and healthcare and how they are becoming increasingly entangled, shares examples of how supportive housing has developed cross-sector partnerships as a means to support people living in extreme poverty and engaged in crisis services to find stability in the community and generate positive health and financial returns. Ryan sees affordable housing as an underutilized resource for public health, public safety, and human service systems, which can be developed as backbone infrastructure for resilient and equitable communities. The presentation poses the question of what it will take for affordable housing to meet this challenge.

NHPF’S COMMITMENT AND MISSION TO PRESERVE AFFORDABLE HOUSING is not realized through bricks and mortar alone, but in union with programs and services offered to
residents. Residents in NHPF communities have access to a wide variety of educational, health, and enrichment programming through Operation Pathways, an affiliate of NHPF. Operation Pathways believes that affordable housing combined with wrap-around services increases housing stability for low and moderate income families. Feeling secure about housing not only relieves families of the stress of becoming homeless, but it also provides them with the foundation to build healthier lives for themselves and their children. Operation Pathways’ programs and services complement housing, thereby creating healthy communities in which families thrive. Operation Pathways is a CORES certified resident services provider and was the first resident services provider in the country to receive this distinction. CORES certification is awarded to affordable housing service providers based on the strength and quality of their infrastructure, systems, programs, and outcomes. Operation Pathways’ successful approach to delivering high-quality programs is based on a philosophy of program delivery that is impactful, innovative, and in-house. At each NHPF property, resident services coordinators implement site-based programs and services, based on the needs of the residents. Operation Pathways categorizes its comprehensive programming into four components:
PATHWAY TO ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT focuses on the educational needs of residents. Operation Pathways promotes academic success and lifelong learning as a means to break the cycle of poverty. Operation Pathways partners with
organizations that design and implement afterschool and summer programs for school-age children which improve academic success and produce significant, measurable results.
20 • THE NHP FOUNDATION 2018 SYMPOSIUM & DINNER
PATHWAY TO HEALTHIER LIVING promotes activities and lifestyles that lead to physical, psychological, and emotional well- being. Operation Pathways partners with organizations and individuals to develop and implement multi-faceted programs devoted to healthier living, including fitness classes, healthy cooking workshops, smoking
cessation programs, and community garden projects. Often, mobile health services come directly to properties to provide health screenings, vaccinations, and diagnose potentially serious issues.
PATHWAY TO FINANCIAL STABILITY educates residents in sound financial practices to increase income, decrease expenses, and build assets. The financial education program provides instruction related to credit, savings, proper insurance coverage, and investments. With this education, residents are able to build budgets and save for the future.
Operation Pathways also provides opportunities for residents to increase their employability through workforce development, including technology workshops, GED support, resume writing, and interview preparation. PATHWAY TO AGING IN PLACE engages residents in NHPF’s senior communities by providing programs and services that give senior residents the tools they need to ensure economic security, prevent illness, improve health, understand their legal rights, and live in a safe environment. Seniors are engaged through activities and programs that also encourage socialization, so as to enhance social support, increase awareness and education, and prevent elder abuse. The resident services coordinator at each property assesses the needs of residents and responds by implementing programs and services to improve their quality of life. The coordinators represent Operation Pathways in each community and provide one-on-one individualized support and guidance to help residents identify resources and overcome the challenges they face.

The NHP Foundation Statement
THE DATA IS CLEAR. When an individual or family is housing insecure, government costs rise as services become stretched, and hospitals incur more frequent patient visits. These “super users” are defined as the 5% of patients using 75% of health services. The data also show conclusively that stable housing is a social determinant of improved health and quality of life. In fact, study after study has shown an over 50% reduction in emergency room visits and inpatient stays, a year after individuals are provided safe, affordable housing. Reliable housing is a prescription for chronic health problems. Currently, there is a shortage of seven million affordable homes in the US. On any given night more than 550,000 Americans experience homelessness. Of those, nearly 85,000 have untreated or undiagnosed health conditions. While at the same time, the leading cause of bankruptcy and credit card debt in this nation is the cost of medical care. Clearly, Americans understand the relationship housing and health has on them physically and financially. Now it’s time for those in housing, healthcare, financial and social services and policy to make the same realization. We must eliminate silos and strengthen our ties to improve more lives through better use of existing housing resources. But, the industry can’t manage this daunting task solely by way of traditional partnerships and funding mechanisms. We need new cooperative efforts with organizations that share the weight and social responsibility of providing appropriate housing for the most at-risk and vulnerable population. For this to occur we need to take a wider perspective, identifying all the sectors impacted by a lack of affordable housing, and collectively empower future investments and hard-working solutions. NHPF will always be a leading voice in our country’s drive to house economically challenged Americans. With help from everyone here tonight and those we will reach out to, we will continue to steer constructive dialogue, bring together like-minded thinkers and deliver on our commitment to the people and communities we serve.
