Policy Leadership Council

CHAPA's Policy Leadership Council (PLC) is comprised of leading strategic-thinkers in the affordable housing and community development field. Members are selected by CHAPA's Board of Directors and represent a diverse cross-section of stakeholders.

The PLC considers affordable housing policy issues and makes recommendations regarding CHAPA's legislative agenda. The PLC meets at least 3 times a year and establishes ad hoc committees on specific policy areas.
