Policy Advocacy Overview
The National Housing Trust advances federal, state, and local policies that create equitable and sustainable communities by safeguarding our nation's affordable homes. We work with our partners to preserve and improve affordable housing by:
- Shaping legislation and policy implementation to protect existing housing resources;
- Documenting successful, cost effective and replicable affordable housing preservation state and local policy solutions;
- Leading a coalition of affordable housing preservation advocates and practitioners known as the Preservation Working Group; and
- Providing research and analysis on our nation's at risk affordable homes.
The National Housing Trust works on a broad
array of issues as we safeguard affordable homes, including
neighborhood stabilization, green building, transit oriented
development, and smart growth development.
