National Rural Housing Coalition
The National Rural Housing Coalition (NRHC) works to focus the attention of policymakers on the needs of rural areas both by direct lobbying and by coordinating a network of rural housing advocates around the nation. As a broad-based membership organization, NRHC sponsors regular conferences where specific policies and legislative proposals are developed. Over the years, NRHC has successfully fought for programs to provide rental assistance, to preserve rental housing units for low-income families, and to promote self-help housing and new funding for home repair. The Coalition works to target Federal rural housing resources to people most in need to ensure adequate funding levels for rural housing programs. NRHC promotes a nonprofit delivery system for rural housing and community development programs and advocates for the resistance of efforts to put key housing and development programs into underfunded block grants.
