National Call on HoUsed: Universal, Stable, Affordable Housing

NLIHC provides multiple opportunities for local, state, and national organizations to dive deeper into the critical issues facing our communities during and beyond the pandemic.

Join NLIHC’s bi-weekly National Call on HoUsed: Universal, Stable, Affordable Housing every other Monday from 2:30-4:00 pm ET to learn more about how to advance long-term solutions to end the housing crisis and achieve housing justice. NLIHC’s HoUSed campaign is focused on advancing anti-racist policies and achieving the large-scale, sustained investments and reforms necessary to ensure that renters with the lowest incomes have an affordable and accessible place to call home.

Over the past two years, NLIHC’s Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition (DHRC) has been hosting weekly national calls to share information about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on people experiencing homelessness and America’s lowest-income renters, as well as the responses being carried out by federal, state, and local governments, homeless service providers, housing providers, and advocates. We invite you to continue engaging in these issues by participating in our Disaster Recovery Working Group calls every Tuesday at 3:00 pm ET! Learn more and register at:

    Our Homes, Our Votes

    Monday at 2:30pm ET

    Our Homes, Our Votes is NLIHC’s nonpartisan campaign to increase voter participation among low-income renters and to educate candidates about housing solutions. Because of stark disparities in voter turnout between low-income renters and high-income homeowners, too many policymakers turn their attention away from the affordable housing crisis and disregard the housing needs of their low-income constituents. Our Homes, Our Votes aims to break this cycle by providing the tools and resources that housing advocates need to mobilize low-income voters and engage with candidates. The Our Homes, Our Votes webinar series brings experts with frontline election experience to walk through every step of voter engagement and support housing organizations’ nonpartisan election efforts.  The webinar will take place every other Monday at 2:30pm ET from April through November 2022.
