Benefiting from the level of respect, authority, and influence garnered by the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) and their advocacy for the provision of adequate and affordable housing and strong, viable communities for all Americans—particularly those with low- and moderate-incomes, PSWRC – NAHRO and its members have available to them a means to change mindsets, cityscapes and lives.
PSWRC – NAHRO membership unites you with a region full of the brightest and most effective network of housing and community development professionals.
We cannot continue to do this work without you! Membership applications for individuals, affiliated organizations, housing/community revitalization & development agencies, renewal/redevelopment & urban development agencies,and code enforcement agencies are available now. Regional agency membership is independent of agency membership in National NAHRO. Dues are based on either the number of housing units (housing agencies) or population served (community and redevelopment agencies).
