National Housing Law Project
NHLP is a national housing law and advocacy center based in San Francisco. The mission of NHLP is to advance housing justice for the poor by increasing and preserving the supply of decent affordable housing, by improving existing housing conditions, including physical conditions and management practices, by expanding and enforcing low-income tenants' and homeowners' rights, and by increasing opportunities for racial and ethnic minorities. NHLP works to achieve that goal by providing legal assistance, advocacy advice, and housing expertise to legal services and other attorneys, low-income housing advocacy groups, and others who serve the poor. NHLP's primary areas of emphasis are public policy advocacy, litigation assistance, training, and research and writing, focusing on issues and problems that will have the greatest impact on the housing rights of the poor.
