NPH’s Bay Area Housing Internship Program
2017 - 2019
Matt has a passion for providing leadership coaching to other nonprofit professionals, especially entry-level affordable housing developers. In 2015, Matt joined the Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California Board of Directors and committed to working with member organizations to launch the Bay Area Housing Internship Program (BAHIP), which aims to recruit and train the next generation
of project management leaders who come from low-income communities that nonprofit housing organizations serve across the Bay Area. From 2017 through mid-2019, he oversaw all aspects of setting up and managing BAHIP and assisted NPH with securing ongoing funding support, which now includes the San Francisco Foundation and Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative. BAHIP is modeled after the CCRH Internship Program, and Matt currently serves on the advisory committees for both internship programs.
