August Advocacy - Week 1 - Housing is Critical Infrastructure


Help us send daily letters to Washington to speak up for affordable housing!

August Advocacy is NAHRO's annual campaign to reach Congress with advocacy messages about affordable housing and community development programs.

Public housing plays a critical role in our nation's public infrastructure, providing families with a stable home and helping them gain access to other services, including education and health.

Despite how critical public housing is, there has been significant disinvestment in public housing over the last decade. Our public housing stock is aging, and historic levels of underfunding have contributed to the loss of over 10,000 units of housing each year. Between 1990 and 2010, alone, HUD estimates that the U.S. lost over 300,000 units of affordable public housing. This shortage of affordable housing costs the American economy about $2 trillion each year in lower wages and productivity.

As the nation struggles with an affordable housing crisis, investing in public housing is investing in infrastructure.
