Advocacy, Education, and Organizing

CCHO’s housing advocacy is its “in the trenches” work on behalf of its member organizations, meeting regularly with affordable housing developers and city staff to ensure the delivery of critical affordable housing resources. This work includes:

  • Coalition-building and coordination among CCHO organizations
  • Advocacy with the Mayors Office of Housing, advocacy around CDBG (through our participation in the Citizens Community on Community Development), and advocacy on State-level funding (ie, State “Realignment”)
  • Project-specific advocacy
  • Campaigns for development agreements and community benefits from large master-planned projects
  • Ballot education and campaigns
  • Guest lectures, trainings, and presentations on affordable housing
