Opportunity Starts at Home Unveils National Policy Agenda and Urges Congress to Act

Within Reach CoverThe Opportunity Starts at Home multi-sector affordable homes campaign released today its national policy agenda, "Within Reach."  The campaign makes the case that stronger federal action to ensure the most vulnerable low-income households have safe, decent, affordable homes is long-overdue. 

Over the past year, leading national organizations from the housing, education, health, civil rights, anti-hunger, anti-poverty, and faith-based sectors have joined together through Opportunity Starts at Home, an unprecedented multi-sector campaign advocating for more robust and equitable federal housing policies. "Within Reach" identifies essential short- and long-term policy strategies for Congress to act on.

The campaign will host a congressional briefing on the “Within Reach” policy agenda at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center today, January 24, at 1:00 p.m. ET.  Follow the campaign on Twitter @OppStartsatHome to view a livestream of the event.  See more event information including speakers at:
