NAAHL’s mission is to expand economic opportunity through responsible private financing for affordable housing and inclusive neighborhood revitalization.

NAAHL was founded in 1990 as the national alliance of banks, nonprofits, and other private lenders and investors in affordable housing and neighborhood revitalization to share best practices and advocate for supportive public policies.  NAAHL is the only national association that brings together banks, CDFIs and other capital providers for affordable housing and inclusive neighborhood revitalization.
