About Housing Action New Hampshire
Housing Action NH is a coalition of organizations and individual members united around a common vision that everyone benefits when all Granite Staters have a safe, decent, affordable place to call home.
Powered by its statewide member network, Housing Action NH fosters and coordinates alliances to advocate for strong public investments and policies that preserve and increase the supply of housing that is affordable to NH’s low income residents. We prioritize and engage our members to act on state and national housing policies to improve the local housing landscape and to end homelessness in New Hampshire.

Join New Hampshire advocates at this annual event! National housing advocates reflect on what has happened over the last two decades, and what we can do to shape policy and funding going forward. The format provides opportunities to interact with the advocates and other conference attendees, learn more about key areas for change through in-depth workshops, and help chart a course for future actions of the New England Housing Network.

Through strong advocacy from the homeless services provider community, the final state budget included full funding for Emergency Shelters. The efforts to advance opportunities for Accessory Dwelling Units also made progress and the SB 135 Lead Poisoning Commission began its work. At the national level, diverse housing interests have come together to challenge the sequester caps through the Caps Hurt Communities campaign.
In time for the presidential primary season in NH, the UNH Survey Center released poll results that 90% of Granite Staters think housing affordability is a problem and 75% think presidential candidates should address the issue.
