Habitat on the Hill

Habitat’s annual legislative conference.

Habitat on the Hill is Habitat’s annual legislative conference, during which advocates for decent housing, including Habitat staff members, board members, homeowners, volunteers and youth from across the country, gather in Washington, D.C., to discuss Habitat’s legislative priorities, attend advocacy and policy-related workshops, and hold face-to-face meetings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

There has never been a more important time for the American people to stand up for quality, affordable housing and the federal programs that serve as its backbone. It should be the goal of every housing advocate to ensure lawmakers do not lose sight of the effectiveness and significance of funding for housing programs that allow families and individuals to build better lives for themselves.

Habitat on the Hill 2018: Leading the Way Home will be held February 13-15 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., and we invite you to join us! This year we will welcome keynote speaker, Judy Woodruff, anchor and managing editor, PBS NewsHour.
