NPI was founded in 2005 by William Regnery II. Until 2010, NPI's chairman was Louis R. Andrews. Andrews died in late 2011 and was replaced by Richard B. Spencer, who had been acting Director at the end of Andrews's life. NPI had been based in Augusta, Georgia, but migrated to Montana, with the change in leadership.
The Institute's authors have produced a series of reports on affirmative action, race and conservatism, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and at least one annual report, entitled The State of White America-2007.
MSNBC reported that Andrews voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 US Presidential Election in order, he said, to help destroy the Republican Party so that it can be reborn into a party that will support the "interests of white people".
In September 2011, NPI hosted its first national conference, entitled "Towards a New Nationalism." Speakers included Richard B. Spencer, Keith Preston, Byron Roth, Alex Kurtagic, Tomislav Sunic, Jared Taylor and his associate Sam Dickson.
Condemned by SPLC as a white supremacy organization
On April 8, 2008, the SPLC’s Mark Potok condemned the National Policy Institute as a “white supremacist” organization, and wrote that its report, The State of White America-2007, “paints ‘a statistical and narrative portrait of the war on white America,’ in the website’s words. Nicholas Stix’s introduction  to the article describes the Supreme Court’s 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education ruling outlawing school segregation as ‘arguably the worse [sic] decision in the Court’s 216 year history.’ He claims later civil rights legislation was unconstitutional. ‘[I]ntegration and the civil rights movement led directly to the destruction of great cities,’ he concludes.”
