ABOUT THE CALIFORNIA HOUSING PARTNERSHIP
The mission of the California Housing Partnership Corporation (CHPC) is to assist nonprofit and government housing agencies to create and preserve housing affordable to lower-income households, while providing leadership on housing preservation policy and funding.
The State Legislature created the California Housing Partnership in 1988 to help preserve California's existing supply of affordable homes and to provide leadership on affordable housing policy and resource issues. It is unique in combining on-the-ground technical assistance with advocacy leadership at the state and national level. Since then, the CHPC has worked with fellow affordable housing creators and preservers statewide to ensure that low-income Californians have the opportunity to live in a home that fosters a healthy, productive life. In partnership with nonprofit and government housing agencies, CHPC provides the expertise, technical assistance, and advocacy leadership necessary to create and preserve homes affordable to those with the fewest housing choices.
