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.
