Welcome to NMHC’s Housing Help Hub
Nearly 40 million Americans are building their lives in multifamily apartment homes. The firms that provide those homes know housing is foundational to a resident’s life and are committed to supporting the health and financial stability of their residents.
This hub seeks to provide resources for renters and housing providers with resources to continually improve the experience of living in rental housing.
Our Resources Advancing Equity, Affordability and Diversity
The Housing Equity Guide
Opening Doors of Opportunity: A Guide for Advancing Housing Equity in the Multifamily Industry is a resource to help highlight ways that multifamily housing can help improve outcomes for underserved populations by supporting the advancement of housing equity in communities across the country.
Housing Affordability Toolkit
Housing stakeholders must be prepared to evaluate their housing market and effectively advocate for local housing policies in diverse communities across the nation. The Housing Affordability Toolkit helps guide discussions regarding housing affordability policies, tools, and incentives.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Toolkit
Cultivating an organizational culture that prioritizes diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is a strategic imperative for innovation and success. NMHC members have asked for resources to support their DEI goals, and, in response, NMHC offers this toolkit to meet apartment firms where they are.
Supplier Diversity Initiative
NMHC has launched a supplier diversity initiative, in conjunction with an alliance of national trade associations, to help its members expand their spending with Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises (MBWEs). This includes contractors, consultants, joint venture partners, vendors and more.
