    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Housing Trust is a national non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and improving the nation's existing stock of affordable rental housing through real estate development, lending, and public policy initiatives. By engaging in both development and policy advocacy, the Trust is able to bring its real estate experience to bear on the creation of thoughtful and relevant housing preservation policies. The proposed grant will allow the Trust to create the "National Housing Trust Organizational Fund" which will invest capital in new real estate business ventures consistent with the organization's mission. Earnings generated from these new ventures will support the organization's policy work and will ultimately be invested in new related business ventures.
