Learn How Housing Providers Can Register and Mobilize their Residents to Vote During NLIHC February 20 Podcast

Join NLIHC for a podcast “The Role of Housing Providers in Registering and Mobilizing Voters” on February 20 at 3:00 pm ET. Register for this podcast and NLIHC’s entire 15-month “Third Thursdays at Three” webinar and podcast series on nonpartisan voter and candidate engagement, free to the public, at: https://tinyurl.com/y3t9gfr2

How can housing providers, such as public housing agencies (PHAs), owners and managers of HUD-assisted private Project-Based Rental assistance properties, and operators of Low Income Housing Tax Credit housing, register residents to vote and then mobilize their residents to vote? Learn how during a February 20 podcast. Presenters will also explore ideas about how PHAs can conduct voter registration with Housing Choice Voucher households who are often harder to connect with during registration drives because the households are scattered.

NLIHC provides an array of nonpartisan resources, tools, and training about increasing voter registration and turnout by low-income renters, as well as about engaging candidates leading up to the 2020 elections. The webinars and podcasts feature subject matter experts and advocates with frontline experience.

The presentations take place at 3:00 pm ET on the third Thursday of each month. All sessions will be recorded and posted to the Our Homes, Our Votes: 2020 website for those who cannot attend the live broadcasts. The full list of webinar topics includes:
