Local Voices Informing Federal Action: A symposium on home affordability

Everywhere you look — cities, suburbs, rural areas — the stability that home should bring remains out of reach for too many families.

With the launch of Habitat for Humanity’s Cost of Home advocacy campaign to ensure more families across the nation can afford a place to call home, Habitat for Humanity convened a dialogue to learn from local and state action to inform federal policy solutions for home affordability.
