The Coalition for Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development

CNHED’s mission is to advance community development solutions that address the inequity of under-resourced communities in the District of Columbia.

CNHED is a dynamic, 501(c)3 member association that supports the nonprofit housing and economic development industry in Washington, DC. Since its inception in 2000, the organization has grown from 55 organizations to nearly 140 today. CNHED’s organizational members include nonprofit and for-profit affordable housing developers, housing counseling and service agencies, community economic development organizations, workforce and business development entities, lenders, intermediaries, and government agencies.

The Coalition for Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development does not place individuals in housing, provide housing counseling, or give legal advice on individual matters. However, many of the nonprofit members and partners that we support through advocacy and training are experts in those areas. Our trainings, events, and online resources are designed help DC residents, homeowners, landlords and small businesses connect with CNHED’s partners whose services match their needs.
