NLIHC has released online its Advocates' Guide 2020: A Primer on Federal Affordable Housing & Community Development Programs, a comprehensive resource for advocates and others involved in many aspects of affordable housing and community development.
The Advocates' Guide provides needed information about every federal affordable housing program and policy pertaining to low-income people. The Advocates' Guide, written by NLIHC staff and other leading experts in the field, contains summaries of housing and community development programs as well as housing policy tools and other information. It contains material that can help advocates deliver an informed advocacy campaign with public officials, in both the legislative and executive branches of government. New in this year's Advocates' Guide is information about HUD Secretary Ben Carson's efforts to dismantle important fair housing tools, ways the current administration is attempting to significantly reduce access to affordable housing for low-income immigrants, and the increased inequities in the mortgage interest deduction after the enactment of the 2017 tax law.
