San Diego Housing Federation was formed in 1990 with the goal of strengthening the non-profit affordable housing development industry in San Diego County. In our early years, we were known as the Nonprofit Federation for Housing and Community Development. In 2001 our name was changed to San Diego Housing Federation in order to better reflect the growing diversity of our membership. San Diego Housing Federation is organized as a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt charitable organization governed by an 11-member Board of Directors.
