Want to learn how to become more involved with NLIHC? Check out the following opportunities:
- NLIHC is currently recruiting members for the 2023-2024. Tenant Leader Cohort. The Cohort is a group of tenant advocates and community leaders with lived experience of housing insecurity who work towards housing justice and racial equity in their neighborhoods and greater communities. NLIHC collaborates with the Tenant Leader Cohort to inform our policy priorities so they best reflect the needs of low-income renters. If you’re interested in being part of next year’s cohort, please fill out the interest form. Selections for the cohort will be made on an ongoing basis through early summer 2023.
- Urge the FHFA to provide robust federal renter protections at our Tenant Talk Live Comment Party on Monday, June 12, at 6 pm ET. The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has issued a Request for Input (RFI) regarding how the agency can create and enforce renter protections for households living in rental properties with federally backed mortgages. Any renter protections created by FHFA could cover a significant share of renters across the nation and put the U.S. on a path towards stronger protections for all renters. Advocates have until July 31, 2023, to submit a public comment and demand strong renter protections for properties with federally backed mortgages. Join us on June 12 for a special comment party edition of Tenant Talk Live, during which you can work on your comment and ask NLIHC staff questions about the comment period.
