Penny Seater talks about the opportunities to advocate for safe and affordable housing at Habitat on the Hill.

Habitat on the Hill

Building a more equitable future.

More than 600 participants representing 49 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico virtually attended Habitat on the Hill 2022, Habitat’s annual legislative conference in February.

Conference attendees gained insight on issues that impact home affordability around the country – the critical need to address the housing supply shortage in order to alleviate rising inflation, how to address racial equity in housing policy, and best practices to improve advocacy efforts back home in their communities.

On the final day of the conference, attendees met virtually with roughly 350 congressional offices, during which they advocated for vital housing and community development programs and funding across their home states and in the U.S.

Attendees also learned more about the next phase of Habitat’s national five-year Cost of Home campaign and how together, Habitat, our partners and supporters are working to meet the goal of ensuring 10 million people have access to a stable, affordable place to call home.  

Sponsors of Habitat on the Hill 2022 included: The Home Depot Foundation, Wells Fargo, Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund, Mortgage Bankers Association and EXIT Realty Corp. International.  

Habitat on the Hill 2023 will be held in Washington, D.C., Feb. 7-9.
