Successful Advocacy on Behalf of Vulnerable Populations

Households with extremely low incomes (ELI) face a shortage of safe, decent, affordable housing across the country. RHLS has acted as a leader in making strides toward increasing supportive housing in Pennsylvania.

RHLS coordinated the efforts of ACTION-Housing, Project HOME and foundation partners, including the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, the Connelly Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, and The Pittsburgh Foundation to advocate for changes to the Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs) allocation process. The result was a more than three-fold increase in the funding for supportive housing developments from last year to this year!
