HAI Group has invested more than $1.5 million to help public and affordable housing residents pay for higher education. Each year, we award 20 scholarships, each worth $6,000, to students who live on the properties we insure to help them reach their goals—and it's quickly become one of our favorite initiatives. Learn more here, and be sure to sign up for scholarship updates.
POSTER CONTESTS FOR YOUNG RESIDENTS
Your youngest residents can participate in fun poster contests and win prizes for their efforts. Designed to teach children about the importance of playground and fire safety (and help keep them safe), these contests are much anticipated each year. Learn more.
As an HAI Group policyholder, you have access to a number of free risk management courses to help you keep your properties safe. Access them at your convenience through our online training portal.

HADA SEMINAR AND OUTING
Since 2001, HAI Group has been bringing attorneys together for our annual Housing Authority Defense Attorneys (HADA) Seminar and Outing. Each year, leading attorneys and other industry professionals volunteer their time to present vital information that helps our members, defense counsel, and claims staff address legal issues facing the housing industry. (This exclusive event is free of charge for members.)

COMMUNITY REPORTING TOOL
The Community Reporting Tool is a data tool that contains frequently updated housing and demographic data for a community or selected geography, and provides you with customizable data extracts and maps that you can use to:
- Amplify your research
- Reinforce your housing needs assessments
- Strengthen your strategic plans
NATIONAL HOUSING PRESERVATION DATABASE
Like you, HAI Group cares about preserving affordable housing, which is why we sponsor the National Housing Preservation Database (NHPD). Created by the Public and Affordable Housing Research Corporation (PAHRC) and the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC), this database is the only de-duplicated source of address-level data for publicly supported housing properties.
HAI Group members use the database free of charge. Register here.
