The Opportunity Starts at Home (OSAH) campaign has welcomed three new state grantees: the Low Income Housing Coalition of Alabama, the Alaska Coalition on Housing and Homelessness, and the Maryland Center on Economic Policy. The three new organizations join a cohort of 26 state partners working to build a cross-sector 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. With the help of technical and financial assistance from the national OSAH campaign, the new grantees will broaden their states’ housing coalitions to include diverse sectors that can be leveraged to engage in federal advocacy.
In addition to Alabama, Alaska, and Maryland, the OSAH campaign supports multi-sector work being conducted in 23 other states: Arkansas, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
