National Council of State Housing Agencies

The United States' Housing Finance Agencies (HFAs) created the National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) as a nonprofit organization more than 30 years ago to coordinate and leverage their federal advocacy efforts for affordable housing. NCSHA is the principal advocate in Washington for both MRBs and the Housing Credit and the principal state advocate for HOME.

NCSHA’s members are the HFAs of every state, the agencies that allocate the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (Housing Credit) in the two states where an HFA does not, and approximately 350 profit and nonprofit firms in the affordable housing field.

NCSHA represents its members in Washington before Congress, the Administration, and several federal agencies concerned with housing, including HUD and the Treasury, and with other advocates for affordable housing.

At the center of HFA activity within the states and NCSHA’s work in Washington are three federally authorized programs: the Mortgage Revenue Bond (MRB); the Housing Credit; and the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) program.

NCSHA is the principal advocate in Washington for both MRBs and the Housing Credit and the principal state advocate for HOME.
