Who We Are
National Affordable Housing Trust (“NAHT”) was founded in 1986 by two non-profit housing providers, National Church Residences and Retirement Housing Foundation. Both organizations envisioned a mission-aligned financial intermediary that could meet the unique needs of nonprofit housing developers, owners, and operators.
With additional financial support from the Ford Foundation, NAHT was formed as a member-based organization. Its sole purpose: providing member partners with the capital and development expertise necessary to support their affordable housing missions.
In 2013, NAHT became an affiliate of Stewards for Affordable Housing for the Future (“SAHF”). In 2020, NAHT agreed to a new joint venture with SAHF and Low Income Investment Fund (LIIF), a national nonprofit financial institution with $900 million in assets under management.
NAHT has provided more than $2 billion in investment equity to help create and preserve more than 23,000 places for seniors and families to call home.
