NLIHC’s Board of Directors unanimously approved the Nevada Housing Coalition and Community Development Network of Maryland as the newest partners in NLIHC’s state and tribal coalition. These organizations join 64 other statewide organizations devoted to advocating for policy solutions to ensure people with the lowest incomes have quality homes that are accessible and affordable in communities of their choice.
Nevada Housing Coalition is a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to creating sustainable solutions to ensure every Nevadan has a safe, stable place to call home through community action and policy changes. Since its establishment in 2018, Nevada Housing Coalition has become a leader in the state in pushing for affordable housing solutions, successfully leading the way on two bills that were signed into law in the 2021 legislative session and influencing the governor’s recommendation to use $500 million of the state’s State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds for affordable housing.
Community Development Network of Maryland is a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting, strengthening, and advocating for the community development sector throughout Maryland’s urban, suburban, and rural communities. Formerly the Maryland Asset Building Community Development Network, the Community Development Network has been an effective organizer and representative of community development organizations throughout Maryland since its founding in 2006. The organization advances its mission through state-level advocacy and capacity-building to support community organizations and local governments.
