As we move forward beyond the nation’s financial crisis, we face new challenges to rebuild housing’s vital role in the economy. We will fix what is broken and preserve what works. We will do it the way Americans have always done it: working together.
This year, on June 9th, NHC will honor, not an individual as its 2010 “Person of the Year,” but the Federal Home Loan Banks’ Affordable Housing Program (AHP).
The AHP is the nation’s largest source of private grant funds for affordable housing and 2010 marks the program’s 20th anniversary. Over the past two decades, the program has provided $3.7 billion for the creation of more than 670,000 affordable rental and owned homes. In affordable housing there is no better example than the AHP of something that works because it succeeds in combination with other resources and many partners.
In housing’s new era, NHC will be at the core of the action in the fight for affordable housing.Your support of the NHC Gala ensures that we will be there to maximize the abilities of our members to meet the nation’s housing needs.
The Gala will take place at the historic National Building Museum in Washington, DC.
For more information on the Gala, please contact NHC Director of Operations, Meetings and Events Thea Beckering via email or at (202) 466-2121, Ext. 221.
