Created by the Legislature in 1988 as a private nonprofit organization with a public mission, the California Housing Partnership plays a unique role in California’s struggle to provide housing that is affordable to working families, homeless, veterans, seniors and the disabled. The Partnership is a “do-and-think-tank” that uses the experience gained from helping our nonprofit and local government partners create affordable homes over the past 30 years. We are the trusted advisor to these organizations, helping them envision and execute financing plans for affordable rental housing involving complex layers of private and public sources of funding.
Combining Technical Expertise with Advocacy Leadership
The California Housing Partnership is unique in combining on-the-ground technical assistance with advocacy leadership at the state and national level to increase the supply of affordable homes in California. What we learn from providing technical assistance and training to our partners directly informs our advocacy work to improve and expand existing funding programs and create new ones.
