NALHFA Member Testimonials
See what NALHFA Members have to say...
"NOHMA was a very troubled agency in 1991 when we were first introduced to NALHFA. Financial, organizational and political problems threatened to dissolve the organization. Thanks to the help from the NALHFA staff and the management review team, comprised of NALHFA Board Members, NOHMA turned itself around and public confidence has been renewed. In 1998, NOHMA expanded its role in the community and was renamed The Finance Authority of New Orleans. Today, the Finance Authority is financially strong. "

"NALHFA is the premier local government advocacy organization in the housing field. Its ability to successfully influence national legislation is second to none."

"NALHFA legislative advocacy over the years has been critical to the affordable housing. NALHFA provided much input into the legislation that eventually became the HOME program in 1990. The NALHFA Board spent several years refining its position, reacting to legislative developments, lobbying senators and congressman and testifying at hearings. But, as Tim Coyle, HUD’s director of Legislative Affairs at the 1991 CAL – ALHFA conference stated, "John Murphy single-handedly saved the housing production component of the program.” "
"Whatever problematic lobbying issues have arisen, NALHFA's influence, advocacy, and know-how have opened doors to ensure a strong voice for professionals financing affordable housing."
