The NHPF 5th Annual Symposium

The organization is also humming with Symposium activity. Our program lineup includes Symposium Conversations, moderated by Laura DeMaria, MPA, Executive Director, National Association for County Community and Economic Development, continuing our much-anticipated series of stimulating dialogues with a “Who’s Who” in America’s affordable housing policy and implementation.

Drawing insights from the foreclosure crisis, the growing scarcity of affordable homes and the injustice of systemic racism, the Symposium gives us all the opportunity to help shape a clear vision and strong course of action to navigate the post-pandemic world.


NHPF  Recognized as 42nd Annual Telly Award Winners

Sole Affordable Housing Organization Honored Claims Two Awards
NHPF has been awarded a 2021 Gold Telly Award for a video telling the history of Baltimore’s affordable housing from decades-old segregation in high poverty areas to the successful single-family scattered site rental housing at Hollander Ridge, provided by NHPF.

The video entitled “Unconventional Affordable Housing: Yes! In My Backyard” is the Gold Telly Winner  in Non-Broadcast: Diversity and Inclusion and the Silver Telly Winner in Non-Broadcast: Social Impact. The video demonstrates how NHPF, with help from the Housing Authority of Baltimore City, acquired and rehabilitated 94 units of affordable housing and is part of the overall positive progress the City has made in providing much needed housing for people of low and middle income.


NHPF has spent the last quarter expanding our portfolio via new acquisition and preservation of housing that is affordable to people of low and middle income.

NHPF is very proud of its work acquiring and rehabilitating our first scattered site individual rental housing in Baltimore City, MD, Hollander Ridge. We’re also honored to have secured $80M in funding to renovate Sunset Bay, 308 apartments units in Cutler Bay, FL. And most recently, NHPF announced the acquisition of funding to create a townhome development containing 56 rental apartments in New Haven, CT.
