That is how many families pay half or more of their income on housing. This means more and more families are forced to make difficult choices just to keep a roof over their heads. This is unacceptable.
To address this challenge, Habitat for Humanity of Springfield, Missouri and other local Habitat affiliates across the country are calling on elected officials and candidates as part of Habitat’s national advocacy campaign, Cost of Home.
The campaign aims to improve home affordability for 10 million people in the U.S. by actively encouraging local, state, and federal policymakers to support legislation that would make the cost of home something we can all afford.
We have a chance to make an even bigger impact this year by calling on candidates at all levels of government to prioritize housing. You can join us by pledging your vote this November to make the cost of home affordable.
We will continue to raise our voices and demand that our leaders and candidates at all levels prioritize affordable housing policies. And we won’t stop speaking out until the cost of home is something we can all afford.
