The United States is deep in the throes of a housing crisis.
The demand for rental housing and homes for purchase far outpaces supply. As rents skyrocket and wealth inequity deepens, more Americans than ever struggle to find an affordable, quality home. NAHT’s Strategic Plan lays out our response to these challenges.
The troubling reality of housing insecurity has only been exacerbated by the ongoing global pandemic—with disproportionate impacts on communities of color and communities with lower incomes. The recent societal reckoning on racial injustice has further highlighted the need to address long-standing disparities.
It is essential that housing industry leaders, policymakers, and community stakeholders come together to develop and implement comprehensive strategies to respond to this crisis.
As industry leaders, NAHT is committed to increasing the supply of affordable homes and financing the building of inclusive communities where residents can thrive. We will expand our mission-forward syndication work with partners who prioritize environmental concerns, racial equity, resident voice, and choice.
Fulfilling our bold vision requires strengthening our business model, diversifying our revenue streams, and demonstrating our value in a competitive syndication environment. Our strategic plan, in concert with related business planning, will guide the ways in which we realize our mission, vision, and goals. It also supports our efforts to strengthen our pipeline and portfolio, increase our competitive edge, and elevate our operation infrastructure.
