2024 NLIHC Housing Policy Forum Hotel and Travel Scholarship Application Now Open!

NLIHC’s Housing Policy Forum 2024: An Unwavering Path Forward to Housing Justice will commemorate the 50-year anniversary of NLIHC by offering a limited number of shared-lodging scholarships for stays at the Hilton Washington DC Capitol Hill and travel reimbursement to individuals and sponsoring organizations, to help low-income people attend.

NLIHC believes in the active participation of low-income people in all areas of our work, including our annual Housing Policy Forum. A limited number of scholarships are available and will cover shared lodging and travel costs for low-income people to attend. Scholarship recipients must be current, dues paying NLIHC members and pay the $100 Forum registration fee. Scholarships will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. 

The forum offers an array of opportunities to engage with and learn from others to advance housing justice, including a special session for tenant leaders and keynote addresses by acclaimed attorney and scholar Sherrilyn Ifill and Dr. Jelani Cobb, a renowned author and journalist.


December 8: Scholarship applications are open on a first come, first serve basis.  

January 5: Scholarship applications due. Once all scholarships are filled, additional applicants will be placed on a waitlist until February 5. 

February 2: Deadline for scholarship recipients to pay NLIHC membership dues (if not already current) and the $100 Forum registration fee. After this date, those who have not paid will forfeit their scholarship to someone on the waitlist. 

February 5: Individuals on the waitlist will be notified of whether we will be able to offer a scholarship to them. 

February 16: Deadline for scholarship recipients notified on February 5 (from waitlist) to pay NLIHC membership dues (if not already current) and the $100 Forum registration fee.
