Habitat for Humanity's Cost of Home Advocacy Campaign

Habitat Metro Denver has joined more than 300 Habitat affiliates across the country to put pressure on elected officials and candidates through Habitat's national advocacy campaign, the Cost of Home. This campaign's main objective is to support policy that will improve access and funding for housing affordability. Together, we are working to expand efforts to influence policy and systems change at the local, state and federal level in four key areas:

  1. Increasing supply and preservation of affordable homes
  2. Equitably increasing access to credit
  3. Optimizing land use for affordable homes
  4. Ensuring access to and development of communities of opportunity

Habitat's Cost of Home campaign believes that advocates and policymakers must acknowledge and address the well-documented historic patterns of racial discrimination in housing and land-use policies—at all levels of government—that still impact the makeup and opportunities of our communities.
