Over the summer, through a collaborative process with many diverse partners, we put together a comprehensive Housing Policy Guide to serve as a resource for state and local candidates and elected officials .

The Policy Guide includes recommendations for legislation and policy reforms in three major areas:

  • increasing the supply of safe, healthy and affordable homes,
  • stabilizing residents and preventing displacement, and
  • promoting safe, healthy and accessible homes.

Our 2023 Legislative Agenda will reflect these priorities and we look forward to working in partnership with our community – YOU – to implement them.
