Two longtime affordable housing advocacy nonprofits have announced that, as of Jan. 1, the groups have officially merged.

The Northern Virginia Affordable Housing Alliance (NVAHA) and the Alliance for Housing Solutions (AHS) announced in a release that they’d be consolidating into one organization.

“The decision to unite is rooted from a shared commitment to better serve the community by leveraging collective knowledge, resources and advocacy strengths,” Jill Norcross, who will near the consolidated group as executive director, said in the release. “This will build on our complementary assets and vision to create a more effective and sustainable affordable housing movement in each jurisdiction throughout Northern Virginia.”

Both groups worked in housing advocacy rather than directly building or managing affordable housing programs.

AHS has worked primarily in Arlington, advocating for the missing middle housing initiative. NVAHA’s website says the group has a wider Northern Virginia focus.

“We collaborate with nonprofit and for-profit organizations, and government agencies engaged in housing and community development in Northern Virginia, across the greater Washington metro area, statewide and at the national-level,” the website said.

A release from the unified organization said one of the goals of the merger is to move toward focusing on regional affordable housing strategies.

A representative of the new organization said a new name is still being deliberated.
