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.
NAHT works with organizers across the country to unite tenants in project-based Section 8 housing.
We are a diverse network of over 300 building-level tenant unions, area and state-wide coalitions,
tenant organizing projects, legal service agencies, and other housing-related tenant organizations.
NAHT's Board of Directors consists of all Tenants from all regions
of the country. These tenants come together both in person and via
conference call to make decisions about organizational policy, planning,
overall agency direction and fiscal oversight.
