NMHC is widely considered the leading national advocate for the conventional apartment industry, and our federal advocacy efforts are one of the most important contributions we make to the apartment sector.
For three decades, NMHC has been actively involved in forming national housing policy and shaping the legislation and regulations that affect the industry.
NMHC and the National Apartment Association(NAA) unite under the auspices of the NMHC/NAA Joint Legislative Program to support legislative and regulatory policies that enable the apartment industry to provide high quality, affordable and accessible homes to the nation's 35 million renter households.
