Habitat on the Hill

Habitat on the Hill, Habitat for Humanity International’s annual legislative conference, is an opportunity for Habitat homeowners, staff members, volunteers and supporters from around the country to unite in Washington, D.C., as advocates for safe and affordable housing.

The three-day conference features national and local experts who share how to effectively advocate for local housing solutions while gaining a better understanding of Habitat’s national advocacy work and its impact.

Habitat on the Hill attendees serve as advocates in action during meetings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, sharing personal accounts and information that demonstrate how housing affordability empowers families. Lawmakers are encouraged to support favorable housing policies and programs, as well as specific budget requests that reinforce the continuation of Habitat’s work. 

The 2020 conference focused on Habitat’s role as a leader in protecting and improving home affordability through policy change at the local, state and federal levels.
