What we do.jpeg

SCANPH is a membership association, founded in 1985, that supports and advocates for those who develop and sustainably operate affordable housing. SCANPH is uniquely situated to identify, prioritize, strategize, and lead policy efforts that are designed to create an environment conducive to affordable housing development. We are measured by our ability to serve low-income residents of the region by securing critical public subsidy funds for new affordable home development, and by our ability to make our members more effective developers amidst funding and resource challenges.

SCANPH strives to increase the capacity and expertise of our members, educate policymakers and the public about the need for affordable housing, and help to establish policies and programs that further these objectives.

Our core programs revolve around the following:




SCANPH membership includes 1500 organizational-based members and more than 4,000 affiliated constituents/individuals tapped into our communications, advocacy efforts, event platforms, and policy goals.



We serve the Southern California region of Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties. Together, these counties represent the largest population base in California, the greatest concentration of poverty and housing need, and a vibrant mix of communities with diverse resources and approaches to affordable housing.

SCANPH’s members have produced tens of thousands of apartments, condominiums, and houses throughout the region. These developments provide housing and services to people who have been homeless, the disabled, elderly, veterans, the working poor, single-parent households, immigrants, low-income families, and low-income first-time homebuyers—among other economically disadvantaged individuals.
