During a recent listening session held in Beloit, Wisconsin, Opportunity Starts at Home (OSAH) campaign partner Wisconsin Community Action Program Association (WISCAP) shared ways to better understand how housing systems can improve the assistance they offer those needing services. WISCAP provided an overview of recent findings from NLIHC’s Gap and Out of Reach reports and surveyed the OSAH campaign’s policy agenda to frame a discussion around affordable housing solutions. The association also emphasized the need for individual communities to play a part in addressing the housing crisis. Learn more about the listening session here and about OSAH’s state partners here.
