Habitat for Humanity International policy priorities

Meeting with members of Congress to advocate and lobby on behalf of housing related legislation.

Habitat for Humanity works with federal legislators and housing regulators to increase support for affordable homeownership and eliminate poverty housing. 

We monitor public policies related to housing, community and international development. 

We advocate for policy choices that increase access to decent, affordable housing for people around the world.

To accomplish our goals, our legislative efforts support and focus on these domestic and international priorities:

  • Affordable housing resources
  • National Service
  • Energy efficiency
  • Veteran housing
  • Foreign aid reform
  • Property rights
  • Housing and urbanization
  • Housing microfinance
  • Disaster response
  • Water, sanitation and hygiene.
