Mission Statement

NAHRO makes available resources for its members and others who provide decent, safe, affordable housing, and viable communities that enhance the quality of life for all Americans, especially those of low- and moderate-income by:

  • Ensuring that housing and community development professionals have the leadership skills, education, information and tools to serve communities in a rapidly changing environment;
  • Advocating for appropriate laws, adequate funding levels and responsible public policies that address the needs of the people served; are financially and programmatically viable for our industry; are flexible, reduce regulatory burdens and promote local decision-making.
  • Fostering the highest standards of ethical behavior, service and accountability to ensure public trust.

NAHRO enhances the professional development and effectiveness of its members and the industry through its comprehensive professional development curriculum, including certifications; conferences; and publications. These efforts work to equip NAHRO’s members with the skills, knowledge and resources necessary to succeed and prosper in a changing environment.

We are now taking applications for the 2018 Awards of Merit. Please consider submitting an application on behalf of your agency to get the recognition you deserve, or better yet, encourage your colleagues to submit one.
