For more than 50 years, state Housing Finance Agencies (HFAs) have played a central role in the nation’s affordable housing system, delivering financing to make possible the purchase, development, and rehabilitation of affordable homes and rental apartments for low- and middle-income households.
The National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization created to advance, through advocacy and education, the efforts of the nation’s state HFAs and their partners to provide affordable housing to those who need it.
NCSHA’s members are:
- the state HFAs, as well as the HFAs of the District of Columbia, New York City, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands;
- the agencies that allocate the Low Income Housing Tax Credit in the states where an HFA does not; and
- more than 300 affiliate members in the affordable housing field.
To advance through advocacy and education the nation’s state Housing Finance Agencies’ efforts to provide affordable housing to those who need it.
An affordably housed nation.
