NLIHC is proud to announce the addition of two new state coalition partners, the Coalition for Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development (CNHED) in Washington, D.C. and the Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness (VCEH).
CNHED is a long-time member of NLIHC. Their membership includes nonprofit and for-profit affordable housing developers, special needs housing service agencies, faith-based organizations, community development corporations, funders, lenders, and government agencies. Recently, in conjunction with the Urban Institute, CNHED assumed responsibility of a housing preservation database developed in coordination with NLIHC. Bob Pohlman, CNHED’s Executive Director, was a moderator at this year’s NLIHC Housing Policy Conference.
VCEH is also a long-time member of NLIHC and is lead by Executive Director Phyllis Chamberlain. A member-based organization with hundreds of advocates across Virginia, VCEH’s priorities included increasing investments in supportive housing, homelessness prevention, and rapid re-housing programs. In addition to their advocacy work, VCEH provides technical assistance to communities across the Commonwealth.
With the addition of CNHED and VCEH, NLIHC has 61 state coalition partners in 38 states and the District of Columbia.
