Become a CLPHA Member

Thank you for your interest in joining the Council of Large Public Housing Authorities (CLPHA). CLPHA supports the nation's largest and most innovative housing authorities by advocating for the resources they need to solve local housing challenges and create communities of opportunity.

CLPHA is the only organization that focuses exclusively on issues that concern large public housing authorities—a leader in representing your interests. Housing authorities that administer more than 1,200 combined units and vouchers are eligible for membership.

Our focus is on advocating for needed funding, formulating effective housing policy, and building coalitions to implement your objectives.

  • We do the legislative and policy work that directly impacts your operations.
  • We provide unparalleled opportunities to interact with peers and leading industry experts at our three annual meetings.
  • We amplify your voice with media and policy makers.

We also know that it is only with our members' involvement that we can play this central role in shaping policy and program decisions. Members’ willingness to provide data and information to us allows CLPHA to play a key role in informing and shaping housing policy and funding decisions in Washington. 

For more information on benefits and how to join, email Trena Mainor, Director of Operations.
