Founded in 1991, CAL-ALHFA has served local housing agencies and professionals in California for over 32 years. We provide legislative advocacy, educational conferences and workshops, and professional networking opportunities for local housing finance agencies and their colleagues. Our membership includes local housing finance agencies and planning departments, for-profit and non-profit developers, investors, lenders, consultants, and affordable housing advocates.
CAL-ALHFA is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and preservation of all types of affordable housing, with an emphasis on working with smaller local agencies who often lack the personnel and resources to meet their affordable housing goals.
