The Opportunity Starts at Home campaign welcomes two new state grantees: Arkansas Coalition of Housing and Neighborhood Growth for Empowerment and Kentucky Equal Justice Center. With the help of additional technical and financial assistance, these grantees will broaden their coalitions to include diverse sectors while leveraging new multi-sector partners to engage in federal advocacy.
The campaign continues to work with stakeholders from many sectors to build a movement to generate widespread support for federal policies that correct long-standing racial inequities and economic injustices by ensuring quality and affordable housing for people with the lowest incomes. Over the past several years, the campaign has provided support to organizations in 21 other states: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.
