The Council of Large Public Housing Authorities (CLPHA) is a national non-profit organization that works to preserve and improve public and affordable housing through advocacy, research, policy analysis and public education. Our membership of more than seventy large public housing authorities (“PHAs”) own and manage nearly half of the nation’s public housing program, administer more than a quarter of the Housing Choice Voucher program, and operate a wide array of other housing programs.
WHY PUBLIC HOUSING?
As one of the nation’s largest sources of affordable housing, public hous- ing plays a central role in the nation’s infrastructure. Like roads and bridges, affordable housing is a long-term asset that helps communities and families thrive. Public housing represents a significant investment on the part of the federal government: over $162 billion including land costs. The program provides 1.2 million units of affordable housing to over 2.2 million people, including 750,000 children.
