Incorporated as a non-profit in 1989, The NHP Foundation’s (NHPF) mission is to develop and preserve affordable multifamily housing. NHPF has preserved 57 properties, comprising more than 11 thousand units of multifamily housing in 18 states and the District of Columbia. NHPF is headquartered in New York City and has offices in the District of Columbia.

NHPF plans to achieve the goals of the Better Buildings Challenge in the following ways: 1) including energy retrofits and the installation of energy-efficient systems and appliances in the rehabilitation scopes of all preservation properties; 2) consistent tracking of energy consumption to identify and correct issues through repairs and retrofits; 3) participating fully in grants and other initiatives for energy conservation retrofits provided by local utilities and other agencies; and 4) promoting energy conservation within its communities and conducting resident education to increase “energy literacy.”
