Our Services and Initiatives

NHLP works to achieve its mission through public policy advocacy and by providing legal and technical assistance, training, publications, and resources to a broad audience of housing attorneys and affordable housing advocacy organizations. Our initiatives focus on issues that will have the greatest impact on the housing rights of the poor.

NHLP provides its services directly to attorneys and nonprofits and does not represent or advise individuals. If you are an individual tenant, homeowner, or homeless and need help, please check our resource list to find an organization to assist you with legal or housing problems.

Our Services

Policy Analysis and Advocacy
Policy advocacy is a core component of NHLP’s work. NHLP policy advocacy efforts include monitoring proposed and existing policies and programs at the federal, state and local levels and preparing and disseminating analyses of proposed policies. We help advocates represent their clients before legislative and administrative bodies and make direct presentations to legislative and administrative bodies. Policymakers often request NHLP’s assistance in evaluating the impact of proposals and programs on the poor. Through our policy work, NHLP keeps abreast of emerging trends and regularly shares federal policy developments with housing advocates throughout the nation.

Co-counsel and Other Litigation Assistance
On select cases with potential for high impact in the development of housing law or affecting large numbers of low-income households, NHLP is available to participate in litigation with local attorneys as co-counsel, amicus curiae, or in an advisory capacity. Please review our initiatives to become acquainted with NHLP’s current focus areas.

You can look at our past Bulletins under the Publications & Training button on the Navigation Bar, or you can look at a sample Bulletin. In addition, NHLP releases periodic publications on emerging issues and specific areas of low- and moderate-income housing law.

Assistance to California Legal Services Programs and Attorneys

NHLP receives funding from The State Bar of California under the IOLTA and Equal Access Fund programs to serve as a statewide support center to the California’s legal services programs and attorneys. As a support center, we provide training, technical assistance, and litigation and advocacy support on issues related to the federal housing programs. Under the Equal Access Fund program, we assist legal services programs in advancing rights of persons with disabilities to reasonable accommodations in federally assisted housing and in representing the interests of tenants and residents organizations in the mandated public housing planning processes. If you are part of a California legal services program, you can contact NHLP to ask for legal and technical assistance.

NHLP’s Current Initiatives

NHLP’s work focuses primarily on the needs and rights of residents of federally assisted housing, generally the poorest people in our county. Most of these households have incomes of less than $10,000 per year, and they are overwhelmingly elderly, persons with disabilities, and female-headed households with children. Our major initiatives focus on affordable housing issues that have the greatest impacts on low-income people and that advance the right to housing.

Neighborhood Stabilization Initiative
Foreclosure Avoidance for Rural Homeowners of USDA-Financed Housing
Public Housing: Preserving Homes and Protecting Residents
Preservation of HUD and USDA Rental Housing
Housing Rights of People with Disabilities
Housing Rights of People with Limited English Proficiency
