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.
Energized by our collective success in securing an appropriation for the state housing trust fund and increasing funding for homelessness during the last legislative session, Housing Action NH and its members gear up for what comes next.

State budget season at the State House draws to a close this week with some progress on the housing front. The capital budget includes $2.5 million for the Affordable Housing Fund and the operating budget includes full funding for homeless shelters and an increase to the Homeless Housing Access Revolving Loan Fund. The Governor is expected to sign both budgets.
In Washington DC, the focus is on the FY 18 budget for HUD and USDA Rural Housing programs. Following Trump’s budget proposal that included draconian cuts to housing programs, Housing Action NH will be joining advocates from the New England Housing Network at meetings with key congressional appropriations staff on Capitol Hill to discuss the importance of these programs and the impact of any cuts.
