NHPF differentiates itself from others in the industry through its strategic thought leadership program based on “owned research.” This includes an ongoing consumer survey program taking the pulse of average Americans on a number of issues. In 2017, NHPF surveyed the public on Millennial Financial Preparedness and Baby Boomer Housing Stress. More than 30 articles were generated by these surveys, each of which positions NHPF as a provider of data pertinent to the affordable housing conversation. The Thought Leadership initiative also extended to the authorship of bylined articles by President & CEO Richard Burns in outlets as varied as Non-Profit Pro, Affordable Housing News, Green Home Builder and The Hill. The NHP Foundation debuted An Afternoon of Learning, An Evening of Recognition: Symposium & Dinner, the
organization’s inaugural fundraising event, which was held on October 17th at Union Station in Washington, DC. Honoring Senators Maria Cantwell (D-WA) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT), two leading proponents of national affordable housing policy with Trailblazer Award, the event exceeded organizational goals and expectations attracting over 300 attendees and 68 individual sponsors. NHPF also honored industry leaders Emily Cadik (Former Director of Public Policy at Enterprise Community Partners) and Todd Crow (Executive Vice President and Manager of Tax Credit Capital, PNC Real Estate) and featured a study on Pay for Success and a thought-provoking panel. The organization raised over $300,000 to support the ongoing NHPF Fund for New Development.
