JOIN ADVOCACY-BECOME A MAHT MEMBER
There are TWO types of membership in MAHT, Voting and Non-Voting:
Voting Membership in NAHT is open to tenant organizations in current (or formerly) privately-owned, HUD- assisted and/or insured multi-family housing that meets the definition of a tenant organization according to HUD rules, committed to permanently affordable housing. The tenant organizations must:
Be representative of the building’s tenants
Committed to permanently affordable housing
And function independently of non-resident owners and management.
Associate membership in NAHT is open to non-profit organizations which work with HUD tenants and share the goals and objectives of MAHT. (Non-profit, non-resident groups which own or manage housing are not eligible to join.) By joining NAHT as an associate member, your organization becomes part of a national movement to preserve affordable housing for low- and moderate-income people. An important part of being an associate member is being a liaison between your local tenant associations and MAHT. Examples of such groups are area-wide tenant organizing groups and housing advocacy organizations. Groups or individuals representing non-resident owners or managers are not eligible.
