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.
The Housing Matters Workgroup convenes monthly to learn, connect and share with a network of advocates united around affordable housing and ending homelessness. These meetings are open to any interested Housing Action NH member.
Please contact Housing Action NH’s Membership Coordinator for details or to receive meeting notices at email@example.com.
As reported in our May News & Legislative Update, House Bill 1409 to end discriminatory rental practices against voucher holders and victims of domestic violence was amended in the Senate to instead create a Study Commission. The House did not concur with the Senate’s amended version of the bill, and requested a Committee of Conference to try finding common ground between the House and Senate versions.
The House and Senate appointed conferees, who met May 28 . Unfortunately, they were unable to reach agreement on the final bill language. As a result, HB1409 died in conference.
