The California Housing Partnership Celebrates 30 Years

30th Anniversary Celebration

Created by the Legislature in 1988 as a private nonprofit organization with a public mission and board appointed by the Governor and Legislature without state funding, the California Housing Partnership plays a unique role in California’s struggle to provide housing that is affordable for working families, homeless, veterans, seniors and the disabled.

The Partnership is a unique “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 the layering of a dozen or more private and public sources of funding. This deep transactional experience informs our policy and research work as well as our ideas for improving existing funding programs and creating new ones.
