Many voices are stronger than one.
We mobilize our members and allies to advocate for policies that help end homelessness, create affordable rental housing, promote sustainable homeownership, and affirmatively further fair housing. We work to increase federal, state, and local investments in proven housing programs, as well as to develop new and innovative policy solutions. On our own and through coalition work, we have been able to secure a multitude of policy victories in Springfield and Washington, D.C., that benefit renters and homeowners.
Housing Action Illinois works to advocate and mobilize around a broad range of issues aligned with our core mission of creating an Illinois where everyone has a good, affordable place to call home. Some of our primary issues are explored at the links below.
