Act now

Even before the coronavirus pandemic, more than 18 million U.S. households were paying half or more of their income on a place to live. 

Now, as the significant economic impacts of COVID-19 continue to unfold, the number of families struggling to make ends meet is only growing. Every family deserves the chance to thrive. Help us make that possible.

Join us in helping to ensure that families – no matter who they are, where they live or how much they earn – have access to a stable, affordable place to call home. Call on your members of Congress to prioritize the needs of low-income families and the organizations that work hard to serve them during the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, we can help make the #CostOfHome something we all can afford.

Stay up to date on innovative ways that Habitat’s network is advocating across the nation.
