National Low Income Housing Coalition

Cushing N. Dolbeare

"The National Low Income Housing Coalition is dedicated solely to achieving socially just public policy that ensures people with the lowest incomes in the United States have affordable and decent homes.



We educate lawmakers and the public about the need for affordable homes.



We mobilize members and supporters across the country to advocate for good housing policy.


Shape Public Opinion

We shape public opinion of low income housing issues.

Founded in 1974 by Cushing N. Dolbeare, NLIHC educates, organizes and advocates to ensure decent, affordable housing for everyone.

The goals of the organization are to preserve existing federally assisted homes and housing resources, expand the supply of low income housing, and establish housing stability as the primary purpose of federal low income housing policy."
