At Flatirons Habitat, we don't just build houses - we work with policymakers to create inclusive communities. From supporting local affordable housing initiatives to advocating for safe, decent, and affordable housing around the country and across the world, we need your voice!
Cost of Home Advocacy Campaign
At Habitat for Humanity, we know that a family should never have to spend more than 30 percent of their income on a home. But today, nearly 19 million U.S. households pay half or more of their income on a place to live.
To improve housing affordability broadly, policymakers at all levels need to support comprehensive packages that address the increasing cost of housing across the rental and homeownership spectrum. Without these policy changes, families across the nation must continue to make choices between housing and paying for food, bills, education, and other necessities. That's why Flatirons Habitat is joining hundreds of Habitat affiliates across the country to advocate for a lower cost of home. Learn more
