The National Alliance of HUD Tenants (NAHT) is a multi-cultural, tenant controlled alliance of tenant organizations in HUD assisted housing. Hundreds of tenant associations representing thousands of tenants in every region of the country are already involved, with affiliated coalitions in 32 states.
Founded in 1991, NAHT is the first national membership organization of resident groups advocating for 2.1 million lower income families in privately-owned, HUD-assisted multifamily housing. Through NAHT, tenants have proven that united action can mount an effective campaign to save people’s homes.
The mission of the National Alliance of HUD Tenants is to preserve and improve affordable housing, protect tenants’ rights, develop tenant empowerment, promote resident control and ownership, improve the quality of life in HUD-assisted housing and to make HUD accountable to its constituents, HUD tenants.
