Throughout our history, the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) has been a trusted voice with Members of Congress on the lack of affordable housing for the poorest people in our country – the root cause of homelessness and housing poverty in America. We have consistently advocated with Congress to enact legislation to protect and increase low income housing resources.
As a 501(c)(3) organization, NLIHC is constrained in the amount of direct and grassroots lobbying we can do. Since our early days in the 1970s, we have had both the 501(c)(3) and a 501(c)(4) advocacy organization, but from 1996 to 2014, National Low Income Housing Policy Center, the (c)(4), was inactive for lack of resources.
In 2014, we reactivated the Policy Center with an extremely generous $200,000 grant from the Oak Foundation and with contributions from individuals and organizations who wished to directly support our advocacy efforts. The Policy Center is a vital part of our mission, allowing us to be a leading voice for specific legislation that protects public housing, Housing Choice Vouchers, Project-Based Rental Housing Assistance, the National Housing Trust Fund, Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure and much more. (The National Low Income Housing Coalition and the Policy Center are both strictly nonpartisan, never engage in electoral politics and never endorse any candidates for political office.)
